When your pet isn’t feeling quite like his or her normal self, we’ll get to work to figure out exactly what’s wrong. We’ll start with a thorough physical exam, and then move on to more advanced technology as needed. Arbor View Animal Hospital offers in-house diagnostic tests. This means you can get most diagnostic test results the same day as your appointment! In-house diagnostics allow for faster and more reliable results.
To better visualize your pet’s bones and internal organs, we offer digital x-rays. With the advances in digital x-ray technology, we can now manipulate the digital images that we take off a pet’s systems. This has allowed us to detect hairline fractures and orthopedic conditions that were previously not visible. We use x-rays to diagnose and examine broken bones, obstructions, arthritis, masses, and tumors.
We can run diagnostic blood tests in-house for a variety of potential illnesses. Our team will examine your pet’s blood to determine organ function and potential infections.
Endoscopy is the use of specialized cameras to evaluate areas within the body in a minimally invasive manner. In most instances, endoscopy is performed for diagnostic purposes allowing visualization and sampling of abnormalities.
Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is usually used in conjunction with radiography. This technology offers our veterinary team visualization of the deep structures within the body.
Ultrasound allows for examination of the animal’s internal organs. It can also be used to determine pregnancy and to monitor an ongoing pregnancy. Ultrasound can detect fluid, cysts, tumors or abscesses within the abdominal cavity.
A small amount of feces is processed in the lab and then our team looks at the sample with a microscope to identify any parasites that may be present. Many of these parasites are zoonotic – they can infect humans as well.
