Whether we’re performing routine blood work as part of a wellness visit, examining an injury, pinpointing the cause of an illness, or conducting pre-anesthesia screenings prior to surgery, accurate, same-day diagnostics are an important part of your pet’s ongoing healthcare. At The Oaks Veterinary Clinic, we have in-house diagnostic tools that can give us answers quickly.
Our in-house lab enables us to process blood work and a wide range of other diagnostic tests and achieve same-day results. The scope of our testing capabilities includes the following:
- Full CBC/chemistry profile
- Canine/feline pancreatic function test
- Thyroid test
- Heartworm test
- Tests for tick-borne diseases, including Lyme disease
- Ear and skin cytology
- Coagulation profiles
- Full necroscopy
We offer the advantages of in-house digital dental and digital full-body x-ray capabilities. Digital x-rays produce clear, detailed images that can be viewed immediately and enlarged on a monitor for more in-depth evaluation. Additionally, we partner with a tele-radiograph company so that we can transmit your pet’s images to them for a consultation when needed for an added layer of interpretation. Digital x-rays are also much safer because they use less radiation, and sedation isn’t typically needed.
When your pet is injured, not feeling well, or requires surgery, you want answers quickly, and so do we. We’re glad to be able to offer our clients the advantages of in-house diagnostics. Please call us if you have any questions or to discuss your pet’s condition.
