Diagnostic Services

Polo Park Animal Hospital has advanced on-site diagnostic services which enable us to facilitate a more rapid analysis of your pet's condition. Our services include:

Digital Radiology

Radiographs, or X-rays, help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. Our on-site digital equipment produces a high-quality digital image, allowing us to diagnose and treat your pet in a timely manner.

Digital Dental Radiology

Digital dental x-rays allows us to take a full set of x-rays of your pet’s teeth, along with the roots and surrounding bone in less time than traditional x-rays. We are able to visualize bone loss or hidden tooth disease that may require advanced dental treatment, and keep watch of areas that may be a problem in the future.

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a modality that can be used for diagnostic or treatment. For instance, if an animal swallows a foreign object, we can use the endoscopy to remove the foreign object from the stomach without surgery.

Color Doppler Ultrasound

This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available.

In-house Lab

We have a state of the art laboratory for diagnostic testing which gives us test results right away. We can run complete blood chemistry panels, blood tests for heartworm and tick borne diseases, urinalysis to check for kidney and bladder health, and fecal analysis for the presence of parasites and giardia. We are able to share the results of these tests with you in a few minutes and can respond immediately if treatment is needed.
