Our Diagnostic Services 

We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, allowing our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.

  • Radiography (Digital X-rays)

    We can examine your pet's internal systems using a radiograph (digital x-ray) to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.

    Radiography is a non-invasive, painless procedure. It makes use of extremely low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required for radiography is so low, it is safe to perform this procedure on pregnant females and very young pets.

    Radiographs are used to evaluate bones and organs and to diagnose conditions such as broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and certain types of tumors.

  • Bloodwork

    We can run a variety of common and specialized blood tests to determine your pet's health and diagnose illness at our veterinary lab in Monroe.

    CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile are some of the most common veterinary blood tests we perform.

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a critical diagnostic test that provides your veterinarian with critical information about the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to evaluate the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be useful in detecting problems in other organ systems and is critical in diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

    This is an important diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals, and it should be included in any comprehensive assessment of your pet's overall health.

  • Fecal Exams

    A fecal exam is a microscopic examination of your pet's feces that can be performed at our on-site veterinarian laboratory in Monroe.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any gastrointestinal infections that may be compromising your pet's health, as well as your family's health. Fecals enable your veterinarian to diagnose intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms in your pet.

    Parasites can make pets feel uneasy and irritable, and can even result in more serious conditions. Some are even transmissible to humans.

    Due to their residence in your pet's gastrointestinal tract, these parasites are frequently hidden from view. They are only detectable through a fecal examination.

    Annual fecal examinations should be a mandatory component of any pet's routine wellness examination.  

  • Digital Dental X-Rays

    Much of the damage caused by periodontal disease in your cat or dog occurs below the gum line, where it is difficult to see. Our veterinarians use digital dental X-rays to assess your pet's oral health.

    Your pet will be safer with digital X-rays. They enable our veterinary team to examine the roots, bones, and internal anatomy of your cat's or dog's teeth.

    The risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower with digital X-Rays than with traditional X-Ray technology. To fully evaluate each tooth, we can see below the surface of your pet's gum line.

    This technology allows your Monroe veterinarian to see results right away and review them on a computer screen.
