Veterinary Diagnostic Testing in Edmond, OK

Understanding Your Pet’s Health

When your pet isn’t feeling well, they can’t tell us what’s wrong. Diagnostic testing is one the tools that can help us understand your pet’s health. At Family Pet Hospital, we use a variety of methods to help us determine a treatment plan for your pet.

Diagnostic testing isn’t just useful when your pet is feeling under the weather; regular testing can help us identify changes in your pet’s health before it becomes a serious problem. We use elements of our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools as part of our regular course of caring for your pets.

Call (405) 294-1088 to make an appointment for a general wellness exam. We’ll help you understand all aspects of your pet’s health.

Types of Diagnostic Testing

Our Edmond veterinarians use a variety of diagnostic tools throughout your pet’s life, as well as when they’re injured or feeling sick. Typically, your regular wellness exams will include laboratory testing, where we test blood, urine, and feces. Lab testing can tell us a lot about your pet’s health. Our in-house laboratory provides quick results so we can get to a diagnosis fast.

Different types of laboratory testing your pet may need include:

  • Complete blood count
  • Chemistry panel
  • Fecal exam
  • Heartworm test
  • Urinalysis

Each of the above tests can provide insight into your pet’s overall health that a physical or visual exam might not cover. By doing these tests regularly with your pet’s normal wellness exams, we are able to set a baseline for your pet’s health. If later tests deviate from this baseline, this is an important indicator that something has changed with your pet’s health. This will allow us to intervene early and treat your pet quickly.

Radiology Testing

For more advanced diagnostics, Family Pet Hospital turns to radiological imaging. Our veterinary radiology services in Edmond include x-rays or ultrasounds. These tests help us dig deeper into any issues we might spot on the lab results or follow up on existing conditions your pet may have. Unlike laboratory testing, radiology gives us a visual inside your pet – we’re able to look at images of your pet’s bones, muscles, and organs to pinpoint medical issues. These procedures are non-invasive and extremely safe. By using radiology in conjunction with lab testing, we are able to more precisely diagnose what might be ailing your pet.

Radiological imaging can show a variety of issues in your pet, including:

  • Providing detailed images of your pet’s bones, joints, and muscles
  • Offering a closer look at dental structures
  • Helping observe internal organs in real time
  • Observing heart and blood flow functions

All of the above items are things your veterinarian can’t see with the naked eye. These procedures are painless, non-invasive, and can be critical elements of a correct diagnosis.
