Pet Diagnostics and Blood Work

Bloodwork, Urine Tests, and Imaging from Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital

When people take pets into their homes, it is important to make sure those pets are well taken care of. This means finding a veterinarian who can provide healthcare for that animal. At Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital, we strive to do exactly that. We invest in the latest diagnostic and treatment options for the benefit of our patients and their families. We are here to serve the pets of the Newport area. 


Lab Testing

At Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital, there are a number of lab tests that we might run to help us take care of your pet. Pet bloodwork is incredibly important. Some of the tests that we run include:

BloodBlood tests can show a variety of issues. Sometimes, we test a pet's blood to look for signs of infection. We also test the pet's blood to look for signs of anemia or clotting disorders.

UrineWe will also do urine testing. Urine tests are important because they can let us know if a pet is dehydrated, has an infection, or has problems with his or her kidneys. We will make sure that we collect the pet's urine in a safe, sterile, and comfortable manner.

Imaging at Bridges Professional Park Animal Hospital

While we hope that your pet never needs an imaging procedure, it is always better to have the test and not need it. Some of the imaging tests that we do include:

X-rayX-rays are an important part of what we do. X-rays allow us to get a look at what is happening underneath the surface of a pet's skin. This is commonly used to help us diagnose and treat broken bones, tumors, and other issues.

Ultrasound Ultrasound allows us to do real-time imaging. It may help us place an IV or drain an abscess. We also use an ultrasound machine in the event a pet pregnancy.

Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Marci and the staff at Bridges have taken amazing care of my boys (who are not easy to work with I might add). They treat us like royalty and I wouldn’t trust my babies with anyone else. They are amazing, always so sweet, caring, and understanding. I just can’t thank them enough for keeping my sweet babies happy and healthy.

    Doctor Roxanne Taylor is the best most Professional Veterinarian. For the past 30 years she has been their for us and our dogs. She has the most loving caring heart of any Veterinarian I have ever met. Thank You Doc. Taylor for all you do! Ronnie & Debbie Ennis


    truly kind and caring doctor and staff. they honestly love animals and and put their patients above everything. I had to lay my dog down, it was a horrible time, and the doctor cared enough to make sure i got her paw print, some of her hair, and her ashes. Then i got a card in the mail from the vet herself that was heartfelt, they are not in it for the money, but for their love of animals.

    I’ve been taking my birds and dogs to Dr. Taylor and her staff for a very long time – one of my cockatiels is 22 years old (they're only supposed to reach 12!) In healthy times, sickness and emergencies, the folks at Bridges have been there for me with compassion and excellent care. They are such a part of the community and are always active in animal rescue events, rabies clinics, and any opportunity to support animal welfare. These folks care like family.

    RITA E.

    I have a very high regard for Dr. Taylor and her staff. They take great care of my pets, and during a recent emergency, I was really impressed by Dr. Taylor’s tenacious, detail-oriented diagnostics and resulting treatment recommendations. Bridges is also the vet for Siamese Cat Rescue efforts in this area. I love the staff. They are so willing to work with us and they really support our efforts in caring for these amazing creatures and helping find them safe and loving homes.


    Dr. Roxanne Taylor is a great, caring vet. I breed, raise and show champion Doberman Pinschers and Dr. Taylor has been my vet for 18 years. She is beyond caring; I can site thousands of incidents. She is very thorough; her motto is ‘let’s find out, let’s be sure.’ Her staff, oh my gosh, they know who you are when you call, are so personable and do everything to make the animals feel at home. They are accessible, honest and truly love what they do. I couldn’t imagine finding better vete


    Oh I love Roxanne! The best way I can describe my experience with her is total trust. She is honest, deeply compassionate and not afraid to refer you to a specialist when it’s in the best interest of the animal. She snatched one of my Yorkies from the grave twice within his first two years of life! And when my sister and I lost our Poodles, she was so comforting. Our dogs just wag their tails like crazy when they see her; that’s a testimonial in itself!

    I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Taylor and her practice. They go to extraordinary lengths to help animals . . . and their people! Before I moved here from New Jersey, I brought my dog to Dr. Taylor whenever I visited my daughter. It was a long way to travel to see the vet, but she helped me bring an abused very scared animal to health. She is very upfront and helps me make good decisions for my pets with complete information. I’m very pleased with the service I’ve gotten at Bridges Animal


    Dr. Taylor has been treating our dogs for more than 20 years. We breed show dogs and therapy dogs and are very particular. The folks at Bridges are gentle, kind and have never let us down. We have complete confidence in them and wouldn’t go anyplace else. We are really lucky to get to work with them.
