When your pet is under the weather or experiencing an emergency situation, you want to find out what’s wrong as soon as possible. At Westside Animal Hospital, we can work through your pet’s diagnostics quickly using our in-house equipment.
We have a complete on-site laboratory for processing bloodwork and urine samples. We can also perform cytology testing to check for the presence of infections, diseases, and cancers. We use an outside laboratory for processing fecal tests to provide you with the most consistent results.
Our on-site laboratory is an extremely valuable tool when it comes to diagnosing conditions in dogs and cats. We can process your pet’s blood work and have answers for you in about 30 minutes.
When cats and dogs have injuries or other conditions that can’t be evaluated with a simple physical exam, x-rays are often needed for a proper diagnosis. Our in-house digital x-ray equipment provides us with clear images quickly and requires less radiation than traditional methods.
Conditions we can diagnose using digital radiology include:
- Broken bones
- Bladder stones
- Heart problems
- Ingested foreign objects
- Reproductive abnormalities
- Intestinal issues
Sometimes, it’s necessary to consult with a specialist to give you the most comprehensive picture of your pet’s health. We maintain professional relationships with internists, oncologists, dermatologists, and radiologists. When necessary, we can share your pet’s blood work, x-rays, or other diagnostic tests quickly with one of these experts.
Please contact us at (307) 472-5600 if you have any questions about our diagnostic services.
