Advanced Veterinary Diagnostics in Columbus, OH
A physical exam for your pet is sometimes not enough to develop a full profile of their health. That’s why we rely on our veterinary diagnostic equipment to help us fill in the blanks. Since pets can’t tell us what’s wrong, these tools give them a voice. We use our in-house lab, digital X-ray machine, and ultrasound equipment frequently to gain a more in-depth understanding of your pet’s health.

Evaluating Internal Health with Our In-House Lab
With our in-house lab in Columbus, we’re able to run tests in a matter of minutes and get the results immediately. A fast turnaround allows us to diagnose the problem faster and get your pet the treatment they need sooner rather than later. Our in-house lab has the capability to run the following tests:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Blood chemistry panels
- Fecal exams
- Heartworm test
- Tick-borne disease test
- Skin scrapings
If ever your cat or dog is feeling unwell and we can’t diagnose the problem with a physical exam, our lab is one of the first tools we turn to.
Advanced Imaging with Pet X-Rays
Our digital X-ray machine takes images faster, develops clearer images, and uses far less radiation than its film predecessor. Cats and dogs can usually get X-rays taken without the use of sedatives, due to the ease of using our digital machine. X-rays develop images primarily of your pet’s skeletal structure as well as body cavities and are instrumental in the following diagnoses:
- Foreign body ingestion
- Fluid build-up
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Intestinal blockages
- And more
