Our Diagnostic Services
Using the veterinary diagnostic lab we have in-house at our Egg Harbor Township hospital, we are able to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's health issues.
The use of diagnostic imaging technologies like ultrasound imaging allows our veterinarians to create incredibly detailed images of the inside of your pet's body, including their internal systems and structures in real-time.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
Since we are able to capture ultrasound images in real-time, we are able to see the structures and movements of your pet's internal organs and even the flow of their blood through their blood vessels.
Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a safe, painless and non-invasive diagnostic procedure. Since it only uses very low doses of radiation in order to construct its images, the procedure is also totally safe for very young pets or pets that are currently pregnant.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
At the vet lab in our Egg Harbor Township hospital, we are able to run a wide variety of both common and specialized tests to help determine both the general health of your pet and to diagnose their illnesses.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used in order to assess the health of your pet's kidneys and their urinary tract system. This test can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems as well and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases like diabetes.
This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
- ECG / EKG
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
- Therapeutic Lasers
Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment for pets suffering from a wide range of conditions, from injuries sustained through trauma to inflammatory skin conditions.
Using low-intensity lasers, therapy with this technology induces a state in your pet's cells called photobiomodulation, encouraging cell growth, healing rates, and circulation in the affected area.
- Digital Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-Rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
The digital X-Ray technology, the risk of exposure to radiation fo your pet is quite a bit lower than with traditional X-Rays. Using this tool, we are able to see below the surface of your pet's gums to assess the health of each individual tooth.
This technology allows your Egg Harbor Township vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
