We use electromagnetic radiation and other technologies for diagnostic imaging, which allows us to access highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we have advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can efficiently produce accurate diagnostic images that provide vital information about your pet's condition and allow treatment to begin more quickly.
We run diagnostic tests and get faster results using our in-house laboratory so that we can diagnose your pet's symptoms and begin treatment as soon as possible.
Our pet pharmacy in Brodheadsville is stocked with a range of prescription diets and medications, providing us with quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
With our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing which allows our vets to provide a more accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical state.
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can make images of your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, painless, and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation, and will not harm pregnant females and very young pets.
Radiographs can be used to examine bones and organs and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and some tumors.
Using diagnostic imaging lets our team of veterinary professionals create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of your pet's internal organs.
Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
Having this in-house valuable technology available to our vets enables your dog or cat's condition to be diagnosed quickly and allows treatment to start sooner.
At our Brodheadsville vet lab, we are able to run a variety of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet and to diagnose illness.
Some common veterinary blood tests that we perform are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic tool that provides your vet with essential information about the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your pet's kidneys and urinary tract, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases like diabetes.
Both healthy and sick animals should undergo urinalysis as part of any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Brodheadsville.
A fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. They also allow your vet to diagnose intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms.
Parasites can make pets uncomfortable and irritable and can lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.
Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.
Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
If your cat or dog is experiencing periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it's not easy to see. Digital dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-Rays are safer for your pet than traditional X-Rays and allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine the roots, bones, and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
With digital X-Rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Brodheadsville vet to see results immediately and project them onto a computer screen for review.
At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we are always accepting new patients. Our veterinarians' experience and passion for animal medicine makes all the difference to your pet's care. Contact us today to schedule your pet's first appointment!
