What are Pet Diagnostics?

Pet diagnostics are the tools we use to identify risks to your pet's health and well-being. Essentially, it helps us determine the best wellness solution by clarifying the problems that complicate your pet's health. At our clinic, we use a variety of solutions to diagnose health concerns.

The common diagnostic solutions we use to keep your pets healthy include:

  • Bloodwork, which allows us to test for feline leukemia, Lyme's Disease, heart conditions or thyroid concerns
  • Digital x-rays, which allow a veterinarian to see broken bones, injuries or certain health complications like tumors or cysts
  • Dental x-rays, which we use to find cavities or gum disease that may harm a pet's long-term health without proper treatment
  • Ultrasounds, which use sound waves to show us a picture of the underlying problems when other tests suggest a concern may exist

Diagnostic tools allow us to identify risks to a pet's health and determine the right course of action for their long-term wellness. It is part of preventative care and it gives us the opportunity to catch problems before they worsen and cause complications.

Using Diagnostic Tools for Preventative Care

Preventative care is a complicated process and you must use proper diagnostic tools for the process. At our clinic, we use a variety of solutions based on the information provided by tests and diagnostic tools. We always focus on identifying the cause of a pet's odd behavior or health concerns before we start a treatment plan.

Since some conditions may have similar symptoms, the diagnostic tools allow a veterinary professional to determine the cause of your pet's actions and behaviors. At our clinic, we may suggest the use of different treatments after determining the reason for the behavior or symptoms you notice as a pet owner. The tools are a key part of preventative care because it allows us to avoid complications and emergency treatments at an animal hospital.
