Answering Important Health Questions with Pet Diagnostics
Want to know what’s really going on inside your pet? Pet diagnostics are an important step in evaluating your pet’s health following a physical exam. At Texoma Veterinary Hospital we offer digital X-ray technology and a convenient, state-of-the-art in-house laboratory for running various tests.
Dr. Tidwell is board-certified in diagnostics, ensuring the best assessment of your pet’s condition. Whether your pet is healthy or ill, we can offer a clear diagnosis and treatment plan for their needs.
How Digital X-Ray Gives Us an Edge
Digital X-ray gives our team the advantage of producing high-quality X-ray images quickly, without the need for cumbersome film trays and time-consuming image development. Furthermore, this advantage allows your pet to spend less time on the X-ray table and more time by your side.
With X-ray, we can diagnose:
- Broken bones
- Dislocated joints
- Inflamed joints
- Deformed limbs
- Heart abnormalities
- Foreign bodies/intestinal blockages
- Kidney stones
- ...and more
Running In-House Tests for Faster Results
Our team also utilizes a full in-house laboratory where we can run all kinds of tests to better understand your pet’s health. Having the ability to evaluate blood, urine, and fecal samples in our hospital means that we can obtain test results more quickly. That way, we can explore the most viable treatment options for your pet and start them on the road to better health.
Some of the most important tests we can offer include:
- Heartworm testing
- Fecal testing
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Full blood panel
- FIV and Feline Leukemia testing
- 4DX testing – checks for heartworm disease, Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, and anaplasmosis
Early Detection Leads to Early Treatment
Treating any issues your pet has before they become a bigger threat can prevent additional problems later in their life. It also helps your pet avoid the debilitating effects of disease. Be sure to keep your pet on top of their yearly checkups so we can screen for parasites and recommend treatment if we find a problem.
