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.
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:
Blood: Blood 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.
Urine: We 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-ray: X-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.
