When your pet is not feeling well, Prairiehaven Animal Hospital has sophisticated in-hospital diagnostic equipment that allows us to evaluate and diagnose your pet’s health quickly. Our facility is equipped with a complete in-house laboratory that allows us to perform screening tests and x-ray equipment.
Our in-hospital veterinary laboratory features diagnostic testing for the following:
We also work with several outside reference labs. Reference laboratories provide us with advanced blood work, such as thyroid and seizure medication levels, urine testing, and culture, cytology, and biopsy results to further maintain your pet’s health.
X-rays are the most common imaging tool we use to examine your dog or cat’s organs and their cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. This is a non-invasive procedure that allows the veterinarian to get a better look at the conditions affecting your pet.
Radiology is used:
Dental radiography allows us to get a full set of dental radiographs to visualize the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone. This is important because most of your pet’s dental problems are under the gum line, which cannot be seen without x-rays. The x-rays allow us to diagnose bone loss or hidden disease that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may not have been visible during our thorough oral exam prior to the dental procedure so that your pet’s mouth will be healthy and pain-free.
We monitor your pet’s blood pressure while under anesthesia, suffering shock, or in other life-threatening conditions. We also evaluate your pet’s blood pressure during routine annual or biannual check-ups.
