When people are sick, they simply go to their physician, explain the problem and receive the appropriate treatment. When it comes to our pets, however, it’s not that easy. Because our animal companions cannot speak, they can’t tell us when they’re not feeling well, explain their symptoms or show us where it hurts. It’s up to us to recognize the signs of a problem, and to take the appropriate measures to address that problem in a timely manner. At Starch Pet Hospital, we utilize a broad spectrum of diagnostic tools to help us get to the bottom of what’s ailing our patients.

Veterinary diagnostics are tools and services that allow us to look below the surface of the skin and learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body. We can then use the information we gather to diagnose and treat the problem quickly and effectively. The diagnostics available to patients at Starch Pet Hospital range from routine tests, such as blood work and urinalysis, to more advanced tools like digital radiology (x-ray) and ultrasound imaging. Our hospital also features a convenient in-house laboratory, allowing us to gather results quickly and efficiently.

When it comes to monitoring the health of our animal companions, it’s up to us to become their voice. With diagnostics, we are able to solve even the most complex cases, developing a solution that will improve the chances of a positive outcome. If your pet hasn’t been acting like themselves lately, and you’re not quite sure why, bring them in for a diagnostic analysis. We’ll get to the bottom of whatever may be ailing them and have them back on the path to good health again as soon as possible.
