Temple Heights Animal Hospital is equipped with the best diagnostic technology that veterinary medicine offers.
Advanced diagnostic services are especially important in veterinary practice because your animal is not able to tell us where it hurts or how he or she feels. Veterinarians rely on various diagnostic procedures and lab tests to gain a complete picture of your pet's health.
During your pet's wellness exam at Temple Heights Animal Hospital, we allow ample time for the veterinarian to discuss your pet's condition and answer your questions. If a wellness exam reveals potential concerns, our advanced diagnostic equipment helps your veterinarian make a complete and accurate diagnosis. Some of our diagnostic services include:
Our in-house pet diagnostic laboratory allows us to detect diseases and conditions such as intestinal parasites, urinary tract infections, heartworm disease, skin infections and yeast and or bacterial ear infections. Routine annual or bi-annual pet blood testing can help us detect early signs of disease such as diabetes, changes in liver or kidney function or simply provide a baseline for future reference.
For more specialized testing Temple Heights Animal Hospital has a close working relationship with one of the most comprehensive reference laboratories for diagnostic purposes. Our veterinarians usually get results within one day, so you don't have to wait and worry about test results.
Digital Veterinary X-rays:
Pet X-rays help veterinarians diagnose many potential health problems, including medical problems affecting your pet's lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, kidneys and bladder. Pet X-rays can also help in diagnosing injuries such as fractures, joint injuries and other orthopedic conditions.
At Temple Heights Animal Hospital, we have the capacity to perform in-house ultrasounds. Ultrasound is a pain-free non-invasive technique that uses high frequency sound waves to produce real time images of your pet's internal organs and help us detect diseases not obvious during an external exam.
