In-House Pet Diagnostics

Our in-house pet diagnostics allow us to take a deeper look during examinations to give you the most accurate diagnosis possible for your furry animal friend. We know you love your pet like a family member and you’ll have timely answers to any concerns about their health with our lab services and digital radiography. Sometimes our bare eyes can’t tell us what we need to know about what’s ailing your pet. Because we can analyze cells and cultures at our practice, and look at your pet’s skeletal structure and internal organs, you’ll have peace of mind knowing they’re in good hands should any medical concerns arise. We’re always happy to help the pets of Hanover and surrounding areas.

Digital Radiography

If we suspect underlying issues for what ails your fur-baby, we may take a closer look with digital radiography, or digital X-rays. With this, we can look at the size and shape of your pet’s internal organs to help diagnose many conditions. Digital X-rays also help detect any foreign bodies inside your pet along with broken bones and fractures. When it comes to state-of-the-art pet diagnostics, digital radiography is a valuable tool for Aloha Animal Hospital. Plus, it exposes your loyal companion to such small amounts of radiation that it’s even safe for pets who are expecting. Some conditions digital radiography help diagnose includes:

  • Liver, kidney or heart disease
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Bladder stones
  • Certain tumors
  • Chronic arthritis
  • Tooth decay

From Wellness Care to Diagnostics

When you bring your pet in for their annual wellness care exam, any concerns about your pet will be addressed. Sometimes these concerns are nothing to worry about, but sometimes they can alert us to potential underlying medical issues. If you notice any unusual behavior in your pet, we encourage you to schedule a wellness care exam and we can run the appropriate diagnostics to better understand what’s going on with them. Cats and dogs are sometimes very good at hiding pain and our comprehensive wellness care exam along with pet diagnostics can reveal what ails them. Please contact us with any questions about our diagnostic services or the schedule a wellness care examination.
