Pet Diagnostics

Our diagnostic equipment makes it possible for us to understand your pet’s health on a deeper level. Since pets can’t speak for themselves, we have in-house tools that can help us do the talking for them. At Animal Hospital of Lewisville, we employ ultrasound, an in-house laboratory, and digital X-ray in order to give our patients the best care possible.

Why We Recommend Annual Testing for Pets

Seemingly healthy pets can have more happening below the surface than we realize. Blood, urine, and fecal testing help us see essential information about your pet's health that is otherwise undetectable.

As part of our commitment to preventive care, we recommend yearly blood and fecal screens to check for parasites and diseases (and the potential for disease). Early detection is vital for maintaining your pet’s health and helping them sidestep future issues.

Digital X-Ray

Digital X-ray imaging has many advantages over traditional film X-ray, including:

  • Much less radiation
  • Higher-quality images
  • Faster processing with the ability to email X-ray images out to other doctors or specialists within minutes
  • A shorter and easier procedure for pets

With X-ray we can diagnose foreign bodies, broken bones, arthritis, and more.

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory allows our medical team to test and receive accurate results on your pet's necessary blood work, all without having to send to an outside laboratory, costing you additional time and money.

We can find problems earlier and and start your pet on any their treatment, medications, or therapies faster, helping your pet on the road to recovery.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a painless and non-invasive way for us to see your pet's internal organs and other structures.

Ultrasound can be used to diagnose:

  • Foreign bodies
  • Cysts
  • Cancerous tumors
  • GI tract obstructions
  • Heart conditions
  • Pregnancies
  • Fluid in the abdomen or around the heart

Ultrasound can be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools, and most pets tolerate it well.
