Just as with humans, there are certain medical conditions that a pet may be suffering from that cannot be detected on the surface of the skin. Veterinary diagnostics are invaluable tools that allow us to delve deeper to identify, diagnose and treat these medical conditions accurately, and in a timely manner. At Village Veterinary Clinic, we offer a wide range of diagnostic services – from blood, urine and fecal testing to digital radiology (x-ray) – to aid in early detection and help our patients maintain ongoing good health.
Ultrasound technology helps us to identify conditions that are not detectable through physical examination or conventional radiology. Our veterinarians have specialized training in ultrasonography.
Our in-house laboratory enables us to perform blood chemistries, cytology, urinalyses, screenings for heartworm, Lyme and other tick-borne diseases, intestinal parasites and more. For tests that cannot be performed in-house, we utilize a commercial lab, which provides us with twice-daily pick-up of samples and quick turnaround on results.
