Pet Diagnostics in Yorba Linda, CA

Pets do not always tell us what is wrong or where they are in pain. As a result, our hospital has an in-house laboratory and advanced diagnostic equipment. We hope to have an in-depth look at your pet’s medical condition as soon as possible.

Pet Diagnostics

A thorough physical examination is crucial to any veterinary visit as it enables the veterinarian to evaluate your pet’s overall health and well-being. However, there may be instances where a standard physical exam isn’t enough to diagnose the underlying health issue, and further diagnostic tests are required.

In such cases, veterinarians use various diagnostic tools to understand the animal’s health condition better. Digital X-rays are an essential tool that allows the veterinarian to see a detailed image of the internal organs and bones, helping to diagnose bone fractures, organ abnormalities, and other medical issues.

Blood and body fluid analysis are valuable diagnostic tools that can help detect underlying health issues such as infections, inflammation, and organ dysfunction. Skin and ear cytology can help identify skin infections, allergies, and parasites.

Ultrasound is another useful diagnostic tool that allows the veterinarian to visualize the internal organs and detect abnormalities such as tumors, cysts, and foreign bodies.

Overall, using diagnostic tools allows veterinarians to better understand your pet’s health and create an accurate treatment plan to help your furry friend feel better soon.
