Veterinary Diagnostics and Laboratory

At Animal Care Center, our diagnostic skill and technology are paired to provide excellence in pet care. We collaborate as a team, to share our knowledge and experience in identifying the source of patients’ problems and develop a treatment plan customized to their needs.

Diagnostic Laboratory

Our hospital offers an excellent on-site veterinary laboratory. We perform laboratory tests during wellness exams and when your pet is ill, injured, or preparing for surgery. Laboratory tests may include:

  • CBC (complete blood count)—Measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets to diagnose infections, anemia, and leukemia
  • Chemistry panel—Measures electrolytes, enzymes, and chemical elements such as calcium and phosphorous levels to determine if organs are operating properly
  • Urinalysis—Detects presence of protein, sugar, white blood cells, or blood in urine to diagnose urinary tract infections, diabetes, dehydration, kidney problems, and more

If pet cancer is suspected, we offer a blood test to detect malignant cells for a variety of types of cancer. When a pet is scheduled for surgery, we perform laboratory tests to identify any risk of complications from anesthesia. These tests may be recommended for all patients, including young, healthy pets.

Digital Radiography

Our digital X-ray technology provides superior diagnostic details, improved image quality, computerized enlargements, and enhancements. Digital dental X-rays are invaluable in diagnosing developing problems in small animal companions.

Diagnostic Endoscopy

Endoscopy allows us to see the patient’s internal organs by inserting a long, flexible tube into the body. The endoscope contains a video chip to capture images for viewing on a video monitor. With endoscopy, we view internal tissue without performing invasive surgery. We are able to insert instruments through the tube as well, to remove tissue for biopsy. The endoscope can be inserted into any body cavity, including the mouth, lungs, rectum, and nose, or even the joints for arthroscopy.

Veterinary Ultrasound

We offer the services of a specialist that comes to our hospital to perform ultrasound diagnostics. Ultrasound is technology that uses very high frequency sound waves to create an image of internal organs and tissue. It is painless, noninvasive, uses no radiation, and is safe for delicate tissue like the retina, the spinal cord, and developing fetuses.

Advanced Diagnostic Imaging

We offer MRI and CT scanning at outside facilities as needed, for accurate diagnosing of intervertebral disc herniation or protrusion and other neurologic diseases.

Best, most caring, most educational vist ever...I love this clean facility and fantastic staff. The doctors will go to the ends of the earth to find an answer to your Pet's problem!

This place is AMAZING!!! The Doctors, the staff... What an extraordinary team! Their expertise in the services they offer is incredible, anything that you need, they can take care of!

By far the best Vet we have seen! They remember me and my dog unlike many of the vets offices that I have visited just as frequently.

If I could give more than five stars to the staff at Animal Care Center ... I would! Dr. Pam and her staff are just amazing, which is something I hadn't seen with our previous Vet.

The best and most well-informed vet we've ever been to, we have more confidence in this team than anywhere else we've been. They did miracles for our big dog through the physical therapy and rehabilitation.

This clinic has some of the most high-tech treatment options available, right up to physical therapy for dogs! I have never been to a veterinarian that is as caring and concerned in my life, and I have been to MANY. I am a client for life!

I like that we always learn more about how to be better pet owners. Having had many vets over the past 20 years, I can say that the care for my pets, knowledge of and use of up to date procedures, friendly front desk staff and smart and kind vets make this an excellent place to get the best possible care for your pets.

I will never take my dogs anywhere else! All the doctors are down to earth and truly care about my pets. They have such a comfortable environment from the moment you walk in the front doors.

Dr. Pam is AMAZING and her colleagues and staff are some of the most wonderful caretakers for my furry kids. The atmosphere is welcome to animals and pets of all sizes and ages. I highly recommend the Animal Care Center.

I can't say enough good things about this clinic! The kindness and compassion they showed me far exceeded my expectations.
