Comprehensive Diagnostic Services

Georgetown Animal Hospital Offers Comprehensive Diagnostic Services for Pets

Diagnostic technologies and laboratory testing are critical methods for detecting pet health problems and determining proper treatments. At Georgetown Animal Hospital in Georgetown, OH, we offer a full range of diagnostic services to help keep our patients healthy and active.

Veterinary Diagnostic Technologies

Technology has become a common feature in veterinary medicine, just as it has in human medicine. X-rays have been used for many years to detect disorders of the hard structures in the body, such as the bones, joints, and spine. Ultrasound has gained in popularity in veterinary practice, a technology that uses sound waves that bounce off tissues inside the body to create an image for vets to use. This measure has reduced the need for invasive exploratory surgeries to determine what’s wrong.

Full Service Lab Testing

Laboratory testing comprises another important measure for diagnosing injuries and illnesses. Blood chemistry testing provides important information about the function of internal organs. Urinalysis informs the vet about problems such as high blood sugar levels, blood in the urinary system, or high levels of proteins. Microscopic analysis can help to detect parasites and infectious agents. Tissue biopsies help vets to determine if tumors are cancerous. These and other tests help your veterinarian to provide an accurate diagnosis for your pet, so that appropriate treatment can begin quickly.

When Your Vet Orders Testing for Your Pet

Testing and accurate evaluation helps your vet diagnose your pet’s health problem and provide the right treatment to resolve it. Tests such as x-rays and ultrasound are not painful for animals, and you can rest assured your pet will be treated with care and compassionate during the testing process. Similarly, collecting blood, urine, fecal matter or tissue samples are performed in the most humane manner possible.
