Magnolia Animal Hospital Offers Diagnostics
For Effective Pet Care
Unlike people, animals are unable to provide much information when they are sick or injured. Veterinary training and experience allow vets to detect small changes that indicate a problem. Diagnostic testing provides important information about what is going on inside the body. At Magnolia Animal Hospital in Raleigh, NC, we offer a variety of diagnostic measures to help our patients, as well as affordable pet surgery.
As with human medicine, urinalysis is one of the most basic diagnostic tests used to find chemical problems inside the body. It can be used to detect infection in the urinary system, as well as detect high blood sugar levels. Often urinalysis is combined with other tests to diagnose. In-House Lab
Our animal hospital has an in-house lab that can do a wide range of diagnostic testing. Blood chemistry tests are critical in finding diseases and disorders in veterinary medicine. It provides information on how internal organs are functioning, which can be important for finding diseases of the heart, kidneys, liver, and other organs.
X-rays have long been used in veterinary medicine to detect disorder of the hard structures inside the body. Computer technology has allowed x-ray images to be even more helpful for diagnosing illnesses in animals. Digital x-rays allow veterinarians to see these images in greater detail for more accurate diagnosis and faster treatment.
Most people are familiar with ultrasound testing in regard to pregnancy, and vets use it frequently to monitor problem pregnancies and birth in animals. However, this technology can be used for a wide range of other veterinary issues, such as joint problems, heart disease, gastrointestinal obstruction and cancer diagnosis.
Endoscopy uses narrow tubing with a tiny camera at the end to see inside the body. A small incision is made in the affected area, and the vet can view the tissues on a computer screen. This allows veterinarians to directly see inflammation, growths, obstructions, and other problems that would otherwise require more invasive surgery to detect.
