In-House Diagnostics

In-house diagnostics mean rapid, reliable assessments for your pet’s health, ensuring quick relief through appropriate treatment. When your pet is unwell, time is crucial, and our on-site diagnostic tools deliver answers within minutes, not hours or days.

To assist your veterinarian in making the right diagnosis, your input is invaluable; as a pet parent, you provide essential information about your pet’s condition.

Your Role in Your Pet’s Diagnosis

We may ask questions about your pet’s behavior, eating habits, and any injuries. It’s all part of the detective work that goes into veterinary medicine when your pet can’t speak for themselves. The questions may cover their appetite, any unusual eating, vomiting, drinking patterns, bowel movements, and activity levels. If possible, bringing a stool sample can aid in the diagnostic process.

Diagnostic Laboratory Tests

Affordable Animal Hospital Orange offers various diagnostic tools, starting with the least invasive methods to minimize discomfort for your pet. Blood work is often the first choice, requiring just a small needle prick and providing crucial information about infections, viruses, or organ function. Routine blood tests, such as those for feline leukemia and heartworm, are crucial for early detection during wellness visits.

Fecal analysis can reveal important clues about your pet’s health, including the presence of parasites or dietary issues. Urinalysis helps detect underlying problems before symptoms surface, while other diagnostic tests, like swabs or skin scrapings, can quickly diagnose ear mites, ringworm, or infections.

Imaging Tools

For a deeper understanding, internal imaging tools like X-Rays and ultrasound provide a clear view of your pet’s internal health. X-Rays are quick and digital, offering enlarged, detailed images to detect issues like bone fractures, tumors, or organ enlargement. Ultrasounds delve even deeper, revealing soft tissue problems, heart function, and tears in tendons or ligaments.

Electrocardiograms (ECGs or EKGs) are noninvasive and gauge heart function, detecting irregular heartbeats, murmurs, and more. Endoscopy, while minimally invasive, allows for detailed internal examination, often sparing your pet from exploratory surgery.
