In-House Diagnostics Help Us Provide Better Pet Care in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Both sick and healthy pets benefit from our in-house diagnostics, which include a full laboratory and digital radiography. When we need sufficient information to develop a more complete profile of your pet’s health, a physical exam alone will not do. To see how your pet’s internal systems are functioning and whether they need treatment for an underlying problem, we need to use our testing equipment to take that extra step. Here in Oklahoma City, our veterinary team provides routine testing for dogs and cats, along with more urgent testing and imaging for dogs and cats requiring immediate treatment. If your pet is unwell or just needs their annual blood work, give us a call (405) 842-2273 Make an Appointment The Importance of Blood Testing Our laboratory allows us to test blood, stool, urine, and even some skin samples. But blood work itself is often the primary way that we gain an understanding of your pet’s health and detect the early warning signs of disease. Furthermore, we recommend annual blood testing because your pet’s health can change rapidly from year to year. Blood work helps us establish their health baseline and build a comprehensive medical history. Testing Options Some of the tests we provide include: Complete blood count (CBC) - As its name implies, this test counts your pet’s red and white blood cells. Blood chemistry panels - With these tests, we can study the blood content and check your pet’s electrolytes, glucose levels, proteins, and much more. These different components can tell us a lot about the health of various internal organs, including the liver and kidneys. Disease screening - We offer a variety of disease screens to check for heartworm disease, Lyme disease, feline leukemia, feline immunodeficiency virus, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, and more. Digital Radiography We can use our digital X-ray equipment for dogs, cats, and any exotic species requiring a more complete health evaluation. With X-ray, we can view the bones and joints in crystal-clear detail and more accurately diagnose issues associated with the musculoskeletal system, including: Joint inflammation Bone fractures Hip and elbow dysplasia Injuries …and more We can also check the heart and lungs for abnormal signs, and screen for suspected foreign bodies.
