Diagnostic Imaging

Our facility is equipped with a modern x-ray machine and ultrasound is available. We have an in house laboratory for emergency blood tests.  We also utilize the services of a large outside reference laboratory.

Laboratory testing is “a window into your pet’s body”, helping us see the health of the organ systems. Sometimes, a pet that appears healthy can often be hiding symptoms of disease. A physical exam may not be enough to diagnose your pet and additional diagnostic tests may be required.

Laguna Hills Animal Hospital is equipped with a complete, state-of-the art diagnostic laboratory with results often available the same day of the appointment. Complete blood counts, blood chemistry panels, electrolytes, urinalysis, fecal examinations, heartworm testing, ear discharge analysis, and skin scrapes are some of the many laboratory tests that we can perform at the hospital.

Whether performing bloodwork before a surgical procedure or on a yearly basis for maintaining good health, laboratory testing is one of the best ways to catch and treat problems before they become major and life-threatening.
