From preventative screenings to sophisticated diagnostics.

Blood & Lab Tests

Annual blood testing helps us determine a normal baseline for your pet. Trending these results over time allows us to diagnose problems early, increasing the likelihood of timely intervention and recovery. Lab testing can also reveal the presence of certain illnesses or diseases and rule others out.

Radiology (X-Rays)

Using radiography, we are able to produce high-quality diagnostic images of your pet’s tissues, organs, and bones. X-rays help us look for arthritis, broken bones, foreign objects, dental issues, enlarged organs, or respiratory dysfunction.

Blood Pressure Screening

Just like in humans, your pet's blood pressure is an important consideration for both heart, blood vessel, and kidney health. We strive to check blood pressures on all of our middle age and older pets at least once yearly to make sure that we are staying on top of any emerging health issues.


This non-invasive diagnostic test measures the intraocular pressure inside your pet’s eye and is used to test for glaucoma and uveitis. Increased pressure in your pet’s eye can be dangerous and tonometry is an easy way to check the pressure without having to sedate your pet.

Abdominal Ultrasound

Using sound waves, ultrasound technology allows us to generate images of your pet’s internal body structures, abdominal organs, spaces, and blood vessels. This is a great way to look at the inside of many of the body's structures. Abdominal ultrasounds are sent to board-certified radiologists for interpretation and recommendations.

Cardiac Ultrasound

Using sound waves, this technology gives us a view of the inner workings of your pet's heart, including the chambers, valves, and major blood vessels. This is a great, non-invasive way to evaluate normal and abnormal cardiac symptoms. With images, videos, and measurements of the structures of the heart, a board-certified cardiologist can give us recommendations and treatments for your pet.
