Pet In-house Laboratory Diagnostics
We use a variety of reliable tools at Sanford Oaks Animal Clinic in Arlington, TX to evaluate our patients, diagnose a variety of health issues, and pursue the best possible treatment plans. We have a full in-house laboratory for running a variety of tests, as well as digital radiography, dental X-ray, and ultrasound.
A digital X-ray is an excellent tool for viewing your pet’s bones and joints, but it can do much more. Our team can also use X-rays to evaluate the heart and lungs, as well as possibly identify foreign bodies and tumors. Our digital equipment is especially useful because it makes X-ray procedures easier for pets. We can spend less time positioning and repositioning your pet, and the images are sharper and more detailed than traditional film X-rays.
Ultrasound is the best tool for visualizing the soft tissue organs in the abdominal cavity. While ultrasound is best known for its use in diagnosing and monitoring animal pregnancies, it can also be used to detect and diagnose cysts and tumors as well as assess the size, shape, and texture of soft organ abnormalities. Unlike X-rays, ultrasound provides our team with moving, real-time footage of the organs and blood vessels in motion.
