Springfield Veterinary Diagnostics
Safe Diagnostic Lab Testing for Animals
Our extensive laboratory services provide information that is critical to the sick or injured pet. Pet Medical Center of Springfield has access to both an in-house and centralized reference laboratory for extensive diagnostic testing, allowing animals to receive appropriate treatment in a timely manner.
Since pets can’t speak for themselves, diagnostic testing is very important for their health. Our imaging equipment was designed specifically for animals. All exams are completely safe for your pets. Results from these tests can tell us more about their current health, risk factors for various conditions, and whether or not they have an injury that can’t be seen with the human eye.
Radiographs (x-rays) are useful in evaluating several areas of your pet's body including musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. Our hospital is able to take high-quality, digital x-rays of your pet. PMCS is equipped with a state-of-the-art digital radiography unit. Digital radiographs are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical problems.
There are many advantages to digital radiology, including the following:
- The time spent taking your pets' radiographs is reduced and fewer x-rays are needed to achieve diagnostic-quality results which means less stress for your pet.
- If a second opinion is necessary, digital radiographs can be e-mailed to a veterinary radiology specialist, making consults much easier and faster.
- The diagnostic quality of digital images is much better than traditional radiographs.
We are proud to offer ultrasound, a non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses sound waves to produces a visual map of the interior of the body for painlessly examining specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Ultrasound can be used for the targeted biopsies of diseased organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, or prostate. Ultrasound is also used to diagnose pregnancy and for counting the number of puppies or kittens in the mother's uterus.
