While regular wellness check-ups are vital, so are specialized tests for preventative screening or when you sense something is not right with your best friend. We utilize a wide range of diagnostic equipment including in-house radiology and a state-of-the-art laboratory.
Radiology, or x-ray, is an effective diagnostic tool used to diagnose a variety of conditions in your dog or cat including orthopedic abnormalities, intestinal obstructions, organ enlargement, and many other vital uses. It is also used for staging heart disease.
Our in-house laboratory allows most screening tests to be completed within a very short period of time. Routine fecal screenings, urinalysis, heartworm tests, complete blood counts, pre-surgical screenings and blood chemistry profiles are among the many tests where results are available very quickly. We also routinely look at cells from masses to evaluate for possible underlying cancers. Reliable independent veterinary laboratories are utilized when deemed appropriate.
My Best Friend Veterinary Center partners with trusted local veterinary specialty centers for advanced surgical, oncology or cardiology cases. We also use local specialists for ophthalmology and dermatology cases, internal medicine consultations, endoscopic procedures or critical cases.
