Through the use of our in-house laboratory, we are able to provide our patients with faster and more accurate diagnosis and veterinary treatment options, while utilizing the latest advancements in veterinary technology and medicine.
Digital radiographs allow us to more easily identify and treat your dog or cat’s medical issues. Often used to view fractures, masses, and your pet’s internal organs, digital X-rays offer a number of diagnostic benefits. Unlike traditional X-rays, which expose your pet to potentially harmful radiation and offer a more restricted view, digital X-rays are safer, painless, and can be read within seconds.
Veterinary endoscopy is widely used to view and remove foreign bodies. We offer flexible and rigid endoscopy to examine areas including the urinary bladder, nose, ears, and chest cavity. Flexible endoscopy is a non-invasive technique that requires no incision, while rigid endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed by making tiny incisions that offer quicker recovery, less pain, and faster healing. Both methods allow for high-resolution magnification for precision. For more information on endoscopy and how it can benefit your pet, please view the videos found at lapspay.com.
Ultrasound is a minimally invasive tool that allows us to view your pet’s internal organs for disease and injury. Through the use of sound wave technology, we can detect irregularities and other potentially threatening health issues. Organs that are commonly viewed using this tool include the heart, kidneys, liver, stomach, and bladder.
Our veterinary diagnostic tools and treatments include:
- Blood pressure testing
- Complete blood count
- Ear cytology
- Fecal testing
- Feline leukemia/FN
- Heartworm testing
- Skin scraping
- Thyroid testing
Our in-house lab also includes a state-of-the-art ABAXIS machine, which is the same technology used in NASA space shuttles. This machine allows us to take very small blood samples, minimizing pain. We also have a specially designed centrifuge, which we use to test for intestinal parasites that often go undetected during routine testing.
