Pet Diagnostics in Stevenson Ranch

Your Four-legged Friend Could be Harboring a Serious Health Secret

Many of the illnesses and injuries that can affect a pet cannot be easily detected on the surface of the skin. When a physical pet exam isn’t enough to diagnose a possible medical concern, we turn to veterinary diagnostics. These tools give us a glimpse at what’s happening below the surface, inside your pet’s body. This makes it much easier and faster for us to understand precisely what health condition we’re dealing with so we can treat it most effectively.  Stevenson Ranch Veterinary Center offers a broad spectrum of routine and advanced diagnostic services.

On-Site Pet Laboratory Testing

One of the most important things when it comes to managing your pet’s ongoing good health is a timely diagnosis. The sooner we can identify the signs of a health problem, the better the chances of a favorable outcome. Stevenson Ranch Veterinary Center features an in-house laboratory, which allows our veterinarians to run a wide variety of tests. More importantly, being able to get results while you and your pet are still in the exam room provides for much more effective treatment strategies.

Diagnostic Imaging Services

In cases for which laboratory work isn’t sufficient to reach a proper diagnosis, we also offer advanced imaging services. These technologies, including digital radiology (x-ray) and ultrasound, let us take a look inside your pet’s body without the need for invasive measures. Just as it’s used in human medicine, our imaging services can be used to evaluate the bones and internal organs. The results can be analyzed immediately or shared with a specialist electronically if necessary.

When your four-legged family member is sick, you want answers and you want them fast. At Stevenson Ranch Veterinary Center, we’re prepared to do whatever it takes to help your loved one.
