Diagnostics

When our animal companions are sick or injured, they can’t speak to tell us what’s bothering them. What’s more, many of the illnesses or injuries that can affect our pets cannot be detected on the surface of the skin. Veterinary diagnostics are important tools that allow us to dig deeper and look below the surface of the skin to learn precisely what’s happening inside your pet’s body. These tools, such as bloodwork, urinalysis and x-rays, allow for a fast and accurate diagnosis and the development of a timely treatment plan. The sooner we can identify and treat what’s ailing your pet, the better the outcome.

Bearss Animal Clinic utilizes a broad range of advanced diagnostic testing to better manage the ongoing health of our patients. We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases. Our on-site, modern x-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. We also provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.

Our convenient in-house laboratory facilities provide for the fast and accurate retrieval of test results, including serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations. Rest assured that whatever is bothering your animal companion, we’re well-equipped to get to the bottom of it quickly so that we can help return your pet to his or her normal, active and healthy lifestyle as soon as possible.
