Garland Veterinary Diagnostics
Understanding Your Pet’s Health
When your pet isn’t feeling their best, you can trust the devoted team at Animal Hospital of Garland to help get them back on all fours as soon as possible. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility, we are fully equipped with a state-of-the-art laboratory and digital radiology services to get a closer look at your pet’s health. If your pet is experiencing an urgent medical issue, time is of the essence. Our Garland veterinarians are ready and able to get your pet back on the path to good health.
In addition to using our extensive laboratory and radiological services for emergency health issues, our team uses the latest diagnostic capabilities to keep a close eye on your pet’s health as part of our routine preventative care. We’ll use lab tests during your pet’s regular wellness exams to establish a baseline of health so we can more easily spot changes or deviations during future exams.
Laboratory Testing at Animal Hospital of Garland
We are proud to have an advanced in-house laboratory to run tests quickly and efficiently without having to rely on outside labs for basic testing.
Our in-house laboratory can help you with the following tests:
- Blood chemistries
- Electrolyte testing
- Complete blood counts (CBCs)
- Fecal checks
While the above list is by no means complete, it does exemplify our ability to run a full suite of tests ourselves, which means your pet gets a diagnosis faster than having to wait for results from an outside lab.
Digital Radiology: Beyond the Fur
Digital radiology allows our Garland veterinarians to see beyond your pet’s fur and into their internal systems. We use radiographs to get a closer look at bones, muscles, and organs when your pet’s lab results or physical exams indicate there might be a deeper issue. Our veterinary team is able to take radiographs onsite and review them ourselves in order to more quickly pinpoint what is ailing your pet. We also send your pet’s radiographs to a board-certified radiologist for a second opinion before we make any recommendations for treatment.
- Provide detailed pictures of your pet’s bones and muscles
- Help us identify foreign objects, like a swallowed toy
- Monitor pregnancies
Radiographs are extremely helpful in both routine and non-routine cases. The above list is just a few examples of where radiographs can be useful. If we need to get a closer look at your pet’s internal systems, we’ll recommend our digital radiology services as another step in our diagnostic testing.
