Diagnostic & Lab Technology, Danbury Vet

Our Diagnostic Services 

We offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab. This allows our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.

  • Radiography (Digital X-rays)

    We can examine your pet's internal systems with a radiograph (digital X-ray). This reveals information that isn't visible from the outside.

    Radiography is a painless, non-invasive procedure. It only uses very low radiation doses. Because radiation is so low, even pregnant and young pets can have this procedure.

    We can diagnose broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and some tumors with radiographs.

  • Ultrasound

    Our team can create detailed images of your pet's internal structures using diagnostic imaging.

    We use ultrasound imaging to produce images of the inside of the body. We do this by exposing a part of the body to high-frequency sound waves.

    We can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels. This is because we capture ultrasound images in real-time.

    Because our vets have this amazing technology, we can diagnose your pet's condition fast and begin treatment sooner.

  • Bloodwork

    We can run several common and specific blood tests to determine your pet's health and diagnose illness at our lab in Danbury.

    CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin, and MCHC are some of the most common blood tests we do. We can also check hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profiles. 

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a critical diagnostic test. It gives your vet important information about your pet's urine's physical and chemical properties.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to test the health of your pet's kidneys and urinary tract system. It can also be useful for detecting issues in other organ systems and is crucial in diagnosing metabolic diseases like diabetes.

    This is an important diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals. It should be included in any comprehensive health assessment.

  • Fecal Exams

    A fecal exam is a microscopic examination of your pet's feces.

    The goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections threatening your pet's health. Your vet can use feces to see if your pet has intestinal parasites like roundworms or hookworms.

    Parasites can make pets feel uneasy and irritable, as well as lead to more serious problems. Some of them can even pass to humans.

    These parasites hide from view because they live in your pet's gastrointestinal tract. A fecal examination is the only way to detect them.

    Fecal examinations should be a part of every pet's annual wellness exam.  

  • ECG / EKG

    We usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG) if your vet suspects your pet has a heart problem.

    This procedure is simple and quick to complete. It reveals information that could be crucial in your pet's diagnosis. In some cases, we may do a cardiac ultrasound to diagnose problems with the heart's chambers.

  • Digital Dental X-Rays

    Much of the damage caused by periodontal disease occurs below the gum line, where it is difficult to see. Our veterinarians use digital dental X-rays to assess your pet's oral health.

    Your pet will be safer with digital X-rays. They enable our vets to examine the roots, bones, and internal anatomy of your cat's or dog's teeth.

    The risk of radiation exposure is much lower with digital X-Rays than with traditional X-Ray technology. To fully check each tooth, we must see below the surface of your pet's gum line.

    This technology allows your Danbury vet to see results right away and review them on a computer screen.
