Complete In-House Veterinary Diagnostics

Advanced Veterinary Diagnostics at Spencer Animal Hospital

Spencer Animal Hospital has an on-site diagnostic department that features state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology and in-house laboratory testing.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-ray technology is a valuable diagnostic tool that provides a non-invasive method of viewing your pet’s internal organs and bones. Unlike traditional X-ray technology, digital X-ray images are viewed on a computer screen immediately after taking them. This allows for more precise images, fewer retakes, and less X-ray exposure. In addition, if a second opinion is recommended, digital X-rays can easily be transferred to a referring veterinary specialist or radiologist.

Some common conditions that can be diagnosed with digital X-rays include:

On-site Laboratory

Our on-site laboratory is fully equipped and capable of performing many tests. These tests, coupled with routine physical examinations, provide valuable information about your pet’s health, including early detection of kidney, liver, and heart disease; blood disorders; anemia; and diabetes. Many animal illnesses require periodic lab test monitoring to ensure they are responding favorably to treatment.

Routine lab tests may include:

  • Complete blood count (CBC) tests
  • Thyroid testing
  • Fecal testing
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood chemistry analysis
  • Coagulation analysis

We have been clients of Spencer Animal Hospital for over 35 years. I know I have always been given excellent care whether it has been routine health care or for an emergency. I appreciate the kindness given to us and our animals and the honest information given when sometimes it is not what we wanted to hear.
