Diagnostics

When our pets are sick or in pain, they can’t speak to tell us what’s bothering them. It’s up to us, as caring pet owners and veterinary healthcare professionals, to get to the bottom of whatever it is that’s causing the problem. Veterinary diagnostics are invaluable tools that allow us to delve deeper – beneath the surface of the skin – to identify, diagnose and treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries that may be ailing our animal companions. The sooner an accurate diagnosis can be reached, the better the outcome for the patient.

Northside Veterinary Clinic offers a wide range of veterinary diagnostic services to help manage the ongoing health of our patients. Whether it’s routine blood work, urinalysis or radiology (x-ray), we’re well-equipped to assist your pet with all of their diagnostic needs. Additionally, our convenient on-site laboratory allows for quick and accurate retrieval of test results. Our lab enables us to perform such comprehensive tests as routine parasite diagnostics, “lump, bump and tumor” fine needle aspiration evaluations, urinalysis, ear cytology, glaucoma screening, complete blood counts and serum chemistry profiles.

Rest assured that whatever is bothering your pet, we’ll get to the bottom of it so that we can help return them to their normal, active and healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible.
