Comprehensive In-House Diagnostics
Providing comprehensive veterinary health care for our patients is our top priority at New England Animal Hospital. Combining trained and knowledgeable veterinarians and staff with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including digital X-ray, ultrasound, and in-house laboratory, allows us to provide each of our four-legged patients with quick and accurate diagnostic results.
Routine wellness exams provide veterinarians with a great deal of knowledge regarding your pet’s health. However, there may be times when diagnostic testing is required in addition to the exam to assist in making an accurate diagnosis. New England Animal Hospital is pleased to provide our veterinarians and patients with the diagnostic tools and procedures needed to ensure your pet stays in optimum health including:
- Blood pressure
- Digital X-ray
- Ear cytology
- CBC (complete blood count) and serum chemistry analyzers
- Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus testing
- Heartworm and Lyme testing
- Intestinal parasite screening
Our in-house digital X-rays take veterinary imaging to the next level. In addition to a clearer image, the digital format provide your pet’s veterinarian the ability to zoom in, isolate, and rotate the image in order to obtain the best possible view. If a referral is needed, or you simply want a copy, the image one can be burned to a CD or emailed for immediate receipt.
This procedure is by appointment only. In case of an emergency, your pet will be referred to an emergency facility where an ultrasound can be performed. Abdominal ultrasounds are used in the diagnosis of such conditions as liver disease, kidney disease, urinary bladder disease, pregnancy, and cancer.
An echocardiogram is a specialized ultrasound that looks at the patient’s heart. New England Animal Hospital is pleased to provide our patients with the services of Dr. Stamoulis, a board-certified veterinary cardiologist who comes in to perform this diagnostic procedure when needed. Some common conditions that may require an echocardiogram include a heart murmur, irregular heartbeats, labored breathing, and birth defects.
