In-House Diagnostics

In-House Diagnostics

Early detection is key when it comes to treating your pet, and Madison Street Animal Hospital offers complete in-house diagnostics including cutting-edge equipment and an on-site laboratory. This saves time, money, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait overnight for results—meaning your pet gets a diagnosis and needed treatment sooner.

In-House Laboratory

We have the capability to perform various blood screens, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, urinalysis, dermatological analysis, and other types of testing onsite instead of sending samples to an outside lab.

While we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, it is possible that your pet may need laboratory work beyond our scope. For those cases, we are happy to send blood work or other testing to an outside lab that will send results back to us.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time image of an animal’s body. This composite reveals important information about internal processes including the circulatory, skeletal and gastrointestinal systems.

When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools, ultrasounds can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage and other internal injuries.

An ultrasound works by broadcasting high-frequency sound waves that reflect off your pet’s internal structures. A small probe held against the skin collects the returning signals to create an image of the internal body, most commonly used to examine abdominal organs like the stomach, kidneys, liver, spleen and gallbladder.

Completely painless and non-invasive, ultrasounds usually require some sedation because the patient must remain completely still. Madison Street Animal Hospital employs advanced imaging technologies operated by board-certified veterinary radiologists, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.
