Tuscaloosa Pet Diagnostic Services
Radiographs (x-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions, such as examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An x-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, x-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet.
At our Tuscaloosa pet hospital, we often take veterinary radiographs as part of your pet's medical examination. Occasionally, in order to diagnose your pet's condition more accurately, a second opinion is necessary. We send radiographs to Dr. James Milton at Veterinary Surgery of Birmingham and to the radiology departments at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine for second opinions.
In-House Pet Laboratory Services
At Indian Hills Animal Clinic, we perform complete blood counts, chemistry and electrolyte profiles, urinalysis, fecal exams for detecting internal parasites, cytology evaluations of many organs plus other valuable tests. Our advanced Tuscaloosa veterinary laboratory gives us the ability to analyze how well many of your pet's internal organs are functioning and allows us to follow up on treatment therapy.
We perform diagnostic tests on your avian pets, as well.
Our Tuscaloosa pet hospital diagnostic laboratory allows us to provide you and your pet with quick and, more importantly, accurate results - an essential factor in the care of your pet. If needed, we can also forward specimens to outside pathology labs for further evaluation.
Additional Diagnostic Testing
We offer electrocardiograms, laboratory services, blood pressure monitoring, gastrointestinal laboratory profiles, allergy testing with desensitization treatment, and microscopic evaluations that help evaluate both cytological changes and parasitic conditions in your pet.
