Diagnostics

 

Is your pet acting unusual but you’re not sure quite what’s wrong?

Diagnosing an illness or injury in an animal isn’t always easy. Because pets are good at hiding symptoms and cannot speak to tell us what’s bothering them, we must find other ways to uncover medical issues. That’s when we turn to veterinary diagnostics. These tools allow us to understand what’s happening on the inside. The result is faster, more accurate diagnoses.

At Airport Irvine Animal Hospital, we can leverage a broad range of diagnostic services to help us stay on top of your pet’s health. Our hospital contains an in-house laboratory in which our doctors can run a full range of comprehensive tests. Whether it’s routine blood work, urinalysis, fecal testing or something else, we can get the answers we need fast. This can dramatically improve the prognosis for your loved one. In many cases, we can get test results before you and your pet leave the exam room.

In addition to lab work, we also offer advanced imaging services. Digital radiology, or x-ray, lets our team examine your pet’s bones and internal organs to identify things like fractures and tumors. Images can be evaluated instantly and shared electronically with specialists if necessary. Digital radiology is much safer for your pet than traditional x-ray imaging. Ultrasound is also available to assess the health of your pet’s organs, including the heart.

When a family member is sick or hurt, you want to get the situation under control as quickly as possible. The team at Airport Irvine Animal Hospital is up to the task. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and work to find the best possible solution. Contact us today to learn more!
