PET DIAGNOSTICS: A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF HEALTH
Sunrise provides full in-house laboratory services to perform most bloodwork within 20 minutes time. We are able to provide a variety of diagnostic options to speed proper diagnosis and treatment of your pet’s illness. This clinic is equipped with full digital radiograph services as well as ultrasound services. Sunrise also uses an outside laboratory for more extensive blood testing.
Senior and geriatric care
As part of our increased vigilance in optimal veterinary care, we recommend routine blood testing for early disease detection. Progression of many age-related diseases can be easily managed in your pet with just a diet change or the addition of an oral supplement.
Because of the many benefits of laser therapy, Sunrise is proud to offer this non-invasive treatment option for our patients. Laser therapy is an affordable, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment to reduce pain and inflammation and increase the speed of healing.
Why Might Your Pet Need Advanced Diagnostic Work?
Veterinarians use pet diagnostics to confirm the diagnosis of certain illnesses, to get a better idea of how severe an injury might be, and to examine the skeletal structure, among other things. One of the more regular uses we find for lab work includes pre-anesthetic bloodwork. Before every surgery, we strongly recommend bloodwork to confirm that your pet hasn’t had any changes to their health that could affect anesthesia. At Sunrise Veterinary Services, we frequently use both laboratory work as well as digital x-ray technology for a variety of situations.
We frequently use lab work for:
- Testing for parasites with fecal exams
- Assessing kidney and organ health with urinalysis
- Examining skin cells for abnormalities with cytology
- Diagnosing diseases with blood chemistry panels
- And much more!
Our digital x-ray technology allows us to get detailed images of your dog and cat’s internal structures including bone and even organs. We use x-rays for:
- Examining broken bones or fractures
- Analyzing organs for disease
- Locating an ingested foreign object
- Checking for kidney or bladder stones
- And more!
- Checking for pregnancy
- Monitoring bladder wall thickness
- Finding bladder stones
- Finding masses on internal organs
- Checking for fluid in the chest or abdomen
