Our Diagnostic Services
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house veterinary diagnostics laboratory, which enables our veterinarians to make an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical problems.
- Radiography (Digital X-rays)
We can examine your pet's internal systems using a radiograph (digital X-ray) to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a non-invasive, painless procedure. It makes use of extremely low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required for radiography is so low, it is safe to perform this procedure on pregnant females and very young pets.
Radiographs are used to evaluate bones and organs and to diagnose conditions such as broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and certain types of tumors.
At our veterinary laboratory in Lebanon, we can perform a variety of routine and specialized blood tests to assess your pet's health and diagnose illness.
CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile are some of the most frequently performed veterinary blood tests.
Urinalysis is a critical diagnostic test that provides critical information about the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine to your veterinarian.
Urinalysis is primarily used to determine the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be used to detect problems with other organ systems and is critical for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
This is an extremely useful diagnostic test for healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
- Fecal Exams
A fecal exam is a microscopic examination of your pet's feces that can be performed at our on-site veterinarian laboratory in Lebanon.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any gastrointestinal infections that may be compromising your pet's health, as well as your family's health. Fecals enable your veterinarian to diagnose intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms in your pet.
Parasites can make pets feel uneasy and irritable, and can even result in more serious conditions. Some are even transmissible to humans.
Due to their residence in your pet's gastrointestinal tract, these parasites are frequently hidden from view. They are only detectable through a fecal examination.
Fecal examinations should be included in every pet's routine wellness exam on an annual basis.
