Our Diagnostic Services 

Using our in-house veterinary diagnostic lab, we are proud to be able to offer advanced diagnostic testing in order to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues. 

  • 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 safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure. 

    Radiographs can be used to evaluate organs and bones as well as diagnose conditions including bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, broken bones, chronic arthritis and some tumors. 

  • Ultrasound

    The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.

    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 systems of your pet's body in action—including the flow of 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. 

  • Bloodwork

    At our vet lab in Manchester we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet, and to diagnose illness.

    Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, pancreatitis testing, FIV/FelV testing, Parvo testing and heartworm testing. 

  • Cytology

    Cytology is the microscopic examination of a single cell in order to diagnose for infectious organisms, screen for cancer, determine fetal health and more in our in-house veterinary diagnostic lab.

  • Urinalysis

    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 generally used to assess the health of your pet's urinary tract system and kidneys, but can also be very helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems. It's also often used to detect 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. 

  • Fecal Exams

    A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Manchester.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms. 

    Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.

    Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.

    Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.  

  • 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.

    With digital X-Rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.

    This technology allows your Manchester vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
