Our pets let us know when they are sick, sometimes in subtle ways. Some pets skip meals. Some pets limp. Some pets hide. Our job at VCA Plainfield is to find out what is wrong, how to treat it, or to prevent it from happening. We are dedicated to using advanced diagnostics in order to assess your pet effectively and to treat appropriately. Our hospital is entirely unique in that:

  • We use the Idexx® CR System for our radiographs. Our x-rays are completely digital. No chemicals are produced when we obtain your pet’s images. This cutting-edge technology allows us to diagnose your pet much more effectively, because of special x-ray filtering programs and superior image quality. Also, we can electronically send your pet’s images to specialists instantly, eliminating postal times completely.
  • We use the Innovet High Frequency X-ray table. This advanced x-ray unit produces superior quality images with much less radiation, which is safer for your pets and our team members.
  • We incorporate the use of in-house laboratory testing with the Idexx® Procyte CBC machine, Catalyst DX chemistry/electrolyte machine, and SNAP tests, to accurately, efficiently, and quickly diagnose your pet when we need results fast.
  • We use Antech laboratories for more advanced testing. Board certified clinical and anatomical pathologists analyze your pet’s samples in order to give us the diagnosis we need to treat your pet effectively. The results are also downloaded directly into your pet’s file, eliminating the need for paper waste.
  • We have made the jump from a paper-based medical record to a completely electronic medical record. Using Woofware software, we easily access your pet’s medical history from multiple computer stations throughout the hospital. We can also take digital pictures of your pet so that we may assess your pet’s condition and monitor for healing. Our digital x-rays can also be accessed from any computer in the hospital, from the front desk to the laboratory.
  • We have an GE LOGIQ F6 ultrasound unit to diagnose conditions in a safe, non-invasive way. Pregnancy diagnosis can also be accomplished as well.
  • A surgical laser option is now available. We use the Aesculight CO2 cutting laser to decrease bleeding, decrease pain, and decrease healing time.Visit us and let us know how we can help you and your pets!
