Diagnostics

 

DIAGNOSTICS

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Our animal companions can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, we rely on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your companion’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can mean a positive outcome and quick recovery for your animal family member.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care. Lab tests routinely handled on-site include, but are not limited to:

  • Complete blood counts (CBC)
  • Chemistry profiles
  • Electrolytes
  • Urinalysis
  • Fecal analysis
  • Blood gases
  • Blood coagulation
  • Cytology
  • Heartworm/ehrlichia/lyme disease testing
  • Feline leukemia (FeLV) test
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) test
  • In-house vaccine titer assay for canine distemper/parvo/hepatitis
  • Fungal cultures

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your pet has been acting out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Call Arapahoe Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and help get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

Dobby has an equal love for playtime with both humans and pups, spending her days cuddling in the Kennel Attendants laps and running around the yards with the other dogs. 💜 | #arapahoeanimalhospital #aah #doggiedaycare #doggiedaycaredogofthemonth #dogofthemonth #boulderdoggiedaycare #welovepets #dogsofinstagram #boulder #colorado
