Pet diagnostics are crucial in identifying and understanding potential health issues in your furry companions. This comprehensive service involves various diagnostic modalities contributing to a holistic approach to your pet’s healthcare. Pet diagnostics at Harrison Animal Hospital in Harrison, OH, is integral to our commitment to providing comprehensive and effective veterinary care. From digital radiography to in-house laboratory tests, our diagnostic services are designed to offer clarity and precision in understanding your pet’s health.

Nurturing Your Pet’s Health Through Comprehensive Diagnostics

Pet Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is a key component of our diagnostic arsenal. This imaging technique allows us to capture detailed images of your pet’s internal structures; whether investigating a persistent limp or evaluating internal organ health, digital radiography provides clarity and accuracy.

Pet Ultrasound

Ultrasound is another valuable diagnostic tool we use to examine your pet’s health more thoroughly. This non-invasive technique visualizes internal organs and tissues in real-time, facilitating the detection of abnormalities, fluid accumulation, or potential masses.

Pet Endoscopy

Endoscopy allows our veterinary team to examine your pet’s internal organs with minimal invasiveness. This diagnostic method is beneficial for investigating gastrointestinal issues, respiratory problems, and other internal concerns without more invasive procedures.

In-House Laboratory Equipment

Our in-house laboratory is equipped with advanced tools for various diagnostic tests, including urinalysis, fecal flotations, complete blood counts, metabolic panels (chemistries), heartworm and 4dx testing, feline leukemia, and feline immunodeficiency virus testing. Having these capabilities on-site ensures quick and precise results, expediting the diagnostic process.

Benefits of Pet Diagnostics

  • Early Detection of Health Issues: Pet diagnostics allow us to identify health issues at an early stage, often before symptoms manifest. Early detection enables timely intervention and better treatment outcomes.
  • Precision in Diagnosis: Our array of diagnostic tools ensures precise and accurate diagnoses, guiding our veterinarians in developing tailored treatment plans for your pets.
  • Minimized Invasive Procedures: Many diagnostic procedures, such as digital radiography and ultrasound, provide detailed information without the need for invasive measures, minimizing stress and discomfort for your pets.

When to Consider Pet Diagnostics

Unexplained Behavioral Changes: If your pet exhibits unexplained behavioral changes, diagnostics can help uncover underlying health issues.

Persistent Health Symptoms: Persistent symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or changes in appetite may warrant diagnostic investigations to determine the root cause.

Preventative Health Assessments: Incorporating diagnostics into routine check-ups can contribute to preventative health assessments, ensuring the early detection of potential issues.
