Our Diagnostic Services
Using our in-house veterinary diagnostic lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing to help our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a safe, painless and non-invasive diagnostic procedure. Since it only uses very low doses of radiation, even pregnant or very young pets can safely undergo the procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
Our veterinary lab in Los Angeles County is capable of running a number of different and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet and to diagnose their illnesses.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
This can be a very valuable diagnostic test for both sick and health pets and should be included in any comprehensive assessment of your companion's overall health.
- Fecal Exams
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Los Angeles County.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms.
Parasites are capable of making your pet extremely uncomfortable, irritable and may even cause far more serious conditions. Some may even be transmitted to people.
Since these parasites generally live in your pet's gastrointestinal tract, they are hidden from view. The only way to reliably detect them is through fecal exams.
Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
- Digital Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-Rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
Using digital x-rays, the risk of exposing your pet to radiation is significantly lower than with traditional x-ray technologies. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line using this tool in order to evaluate each individual tooth's health.
This technology allows your Los Angeles County vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
