Diagnostics

VCA Boone Animal Hospital utilizes non-invasive laboratory testing, digital radiography, and ultrasound technology to diagnose a wide range of health conditions in pets, from routine ailments to serious disease.

Our in-house laboratory includes machines to analyze your pet’s blood levels, clotting factors, and urine. This aids in diagnosing diseases such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, thyroid diseases, urinary tract infections, and much more.

Digital radiography is a filmless x-ray system that produces immediate results, reduces exposure to radiation and requires less table time for your pets versus the traditional film method. It is best used to view solid tissue, so is often employed when determining organ or bone problems. It is also ideal for uncovering tooth decay and periodontal disease that can be hidden from the naked eye and thus missed during a dental exam.

Diagnostic ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to create “real-time” images of soft tissue anatomy, is another significant advancement in veterinary medicine. As a safe, painless way to look inside the body, ultrasound can observe blood flow, heartbeats, and gastrointestinal movement as they occur. Abdominal ultrasound can be used to examine soft tissue structures such as the liver, gall bladder, spleen, kidneys, bladder, prostate, uterus, ovaries, adrenal glands, stomach, and intestines.

All of these diagnostics are tools our experience veterinarians use to help determine the cause of your pet’s illnesses.
