Diagnostics

 

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With our four-legged friends, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, Cedar Veterinary Clinic relies on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact the experienced professionals at Cedar Veterinary Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

    Heather is absolutely fantastic! My lab (Hope) was very sick with a uterine infection which was killing her this past winter. Hope's 8 years old (considered too old by some to risk operating on). However, Heather immediately recommended operating to save Hope's life. There was NO hesitation and she took care of Hope that very day! Heather and staff stayed late that evening to look after Hope's needs. Knowing how worried I was about my girl, Heather contacted me to let me know how Hope was doing. My pup has since recovered and is like a new dog - rejuvenated, happy and healthy! I can't say enough good about the skill, dedication and compassion of this clinic and all their staff! Thank you for your hard work and determination!

    They were good to get my sick kitty in ASAP. Everyone there is caring and takes the time to explain things to you. They also treat the animals the way I treat my animals with love and respect for their anxiety and pain or illness. They do not do a cursory exam and then hurry to get you out of there so they can get on to the next patient. The office is clean and welcoming.
