We Deliver The Care You Need

Your pets are an important part of your family, and you love seeing them happy and energetic. That’s why regular veterinary exams are key. Undiagnosed diseases in pets can cause severe and even fatal health problems, but if the problem is identified early, your pet can still live a healthy, long life. Blue Lake Animal Hospital provides a range of diagnostic services to identify and treat diseases in your pets. We monitor the progression of diseases and your pet’s response to treatment. Using the latest veterinary technology, we quickly diagnose your pet to deliver the care they need. 

Our Diagnostic Services

Treating a pet’s health problems begins by identifying its root cause. We aim to deliver comprehensive veterinary services you can rely on time and time again. No matter what your pet needs, expect outstanding care provided by our talented team. Our veterinary diagnostic services include: 

  • Electrocardiograms (ECG): Our veterinarians are experienced in cardiology for pets and perform ECGs to detect issues related to the heart. Using special technology, we’ll record the electrical output of your pet’s heartbeats. The results indicate a healthy heart or one that is at risk for heart disease and other problems.  
  • Blood Tests: Blood work is used to check for certain diseases. We take blood samples with minimal discomfort for your pet. You can expect a fast turnaround and accurate results from our lab. 
  • Microscopic Examinations: We may need a closer look at a problem, which may warrant microscopic inspection. Some diseases must be diagnosed through a thorough examination. For instance, we might examine a tissue sample under a microscope to look for abnormalities in cellular composition or growth. 
  • Imaging: X-rays and ultrasounds let us take a better look at your pet’s internal health. 
  • Urinalysis: A urine sample can reveal the presence of systemic issues, such as diabetes and infections. 

Some of our other diagnostic tests include complete blood count (CBC), stool sample analysis and more. Each of these tests provides unique insight into the situation, so depending on your pet’s symptoms, we may recommend a single test or a combination.  

What to Expect

During your appointment, our technicians will do routine tests on your pet, such as measuring its weight and blood pressure. Depending on your pet’s symptoms, we’ll recommend different testing. We want you to fully understand what’s wrong with your pet, so we take the time to explain the testing and what the results mean. We’ll outline the possible treatments and solutions as well so you can confidently make a decision that’ll benefit your pet. 

If we’ve found a potential problem, our veterinarians will proceed to treatment. We’ll discuss treatment options, so you know what to anticipate as your pet receives the care they need.  Sometimes, we’ll need to perform further testing to uncover the issue.
