In veterinary medicine, just as with humans, there are often conditions or medical issues that cannot be seen on the surface. In these cases, diagnostic services are critical in identifying and diagnosing these conditions in a timely manner and establishing the most effective course of treatment. At Charm City Veterinary Hospital, we provide a wide range of diagnostic services.
Digital radiographs allow our veterinarians to evaluate your pet’s skeletal, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. In some cases, an ultrasound is needed to make an accurate diagnosis. For these special cases, we are able to arrange for a sonographer to come to our hospital to perform on-site ultrasound services.
To assist with our diagnostic services, we have a full in-house laboratory which allows us to quickly conduct tests such as fecal analyses for intestinal parasites, Heartworm/Lyme/Ehrilichia tests for dogs, FIV/Felv tests for cats, CBC and blood chemistries, coagulation profiles, urine analyses, and cytologies. For more specialized tests, we utilize multiple off-site reference laboratories.
