Diagnostic Services for Pets

While a physical examination is first performed on every patient, diagnostic tests are sometimes required for a proper diagnosis. For some conditions your dog or cat may not display any clinical signs in the early stages and will need testing for early detection. In other cases, vague clinical signs will require further testing to narrow down the cause. Annual wellness testing is also recommended for all older pets and our diagnostic services can aid in early detection and treatment of geriactic diseases.
