At Parkersburg Veterinary Hospital , we offer in-house and specialty diagnostic testing.
In House Laboratory
Our hospital is equipped with a complete in-house laboratory that allows us to measure blood counts as well as other blood values including those for kidney, liver, electrolytes and proteins. These results are often available within a few minutes. In addition, our doctors work with outside labs on a referral basis if your pet requires specialized testing.
We are capable of performing in-house ultrasound procedures on your cat or dog. Ultrasound is a valuable, non-invasive imaging diagnostic procedure that allows our veterinarians to better visualize internal organs. During an ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are directed into the body and bounce off the organs, creating a detailed image of the inside of the body. Organs that we can ultrasound include: liver, kidneys, spleen, bladder, and the uterus to check for pregnancy. Organs that we are unable to ultrasound are the gastrointestinal tract, skin masses, chest, heart, and the pancreas. Most pets do very well with this painless procedure and it can normally be done without any sedation. Please contact our office today to schedule your ultrasound!
