Our Diagnostic Services
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house vet lab, allowing our veterinarians to provide a diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-rays)
We can examine your pet's internal systems with a radiograph (digital X-ray) to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a non-invasive, painless procedure. It only employs very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required for radiography is so low, even pregnant female animals and very young pets can have this procedure performed.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate and diagnose conditions such as broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and some tumors.
Diagnostic imaging allows our veterinary team to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
We use ultrasound imaging to create images of the inside of the body by exposing a portion of the body to high-frequency sound waves.
We can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels because we capture ultrasound images in real-time.
Because our veterinarians have access to this valuable technology in our in-house vet lab, your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can begin sooner.
We are able to run many common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet and diagnose illness.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests performed at our vet lab in Roswell include CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
