Veterinary Testing & Imaging

Our veterinary team uses the diagnostic tests and tools from our in-house lab to both diagnose your dog or cat's medical conditions and create treatment plans that are customized to their needs.

Our hospital is equipped with digital X-rays and ultrasound imaging, which allow us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures and dental health. These images provide us with essential information that aids in developing a comprehensive treatment plan for your companion.

Our veterinarians also perform a variety of diagnostic tests. Bloodwork, urinalysis, and fecal exams allow us to get more information about your pet's internal system and find signs of illness that may not be visible to the naked eye. Results can help rule out certain diseases immediately, so you can worry less. We also have a full, on-site pharmacy with a variety of medications, so your cat or dog's treatment can begin as soon as possible.

At Animal Hospital of Milton we are committed to providing pet parents with the best healthcare products to treat their pet's medical issues and maintain their good health.

Once we diagnose your feline or canine companion's condition, your veterinarian will create a treatment plan. This may include medications, treatments, and other avenues to help resolve or manage the issue.

Our Diagnostic Services 

  • Radiography (Digital X-rays)

    Radiography is safe, painless, and non-invasive. It uses very low doses of radiation which means that the exposure to radiation is very minimal. Even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure without adverse side effects.

    Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs and diagnose conditions including bone fractures, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumours.

  • Ultrasound

    With ultrasound imaging, high-frequency sound waves are used to produce images of the inside of the body. Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we are able to see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.

  • Bloodwork

    We are able to run a number of blood tests to help us determine the health of your dog or cat and to diagnose illness.

    Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a staple of veterinary medicine. This test provides your veterinarian with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your dog or cat's urine.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your companion's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

  • Fecal Exams

    A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your dog or cat's feces. We send these tests out to a third-party laboratory, and can have results in three to five days.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any gastrointestinal infections that could be compromising your cat or dog's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your veterinarian to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites, such as roundworms or hookworms.
