Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing that allows our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical condition.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital X-Ray), we can observe your pet's internal systems and view data that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a safe, painless and non-invasive procedure. Because it uses only very low doses of radiation and level of radiation exposure require is very low, even young pets and pregnant females can tolerate it.
We use radiographs to evaluate organs and bones, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, arthritis and some tumors.
- ECG / EKG
An electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) is useful if your veterinarian suspects your pet may have a heart disorder after performing a physical examination. Chest X-Rays will typically also be taken.
This quick, easy procedure can reveal valuable data that may be sufficient to help your vet diagnose the issue. In other cases, your pet may need a cardiac ultrasound to identify disorders in the heart's chambers.
- Digital Dental Radiology
With our state-of-the art digital X-Ray technology, we're able to evaluate the health of your pet's teeth and gums. Digital X-Rays are safe and allow our vets to assess the roots, bones and internal anatomy of your dog or cat's teeth.
We're able to see below the surface of the gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology means your vet can analyze the results immediately and project them onto a computer monitor to view. Appropriate dental care can then be provided.
At our vet lab in Zeeland we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet, and to diagnose illness.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), 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 is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
