Electromagnetic radiation and other technologies are used for diagnostic imaging. This allows us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
At Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic, we use advanced diagnostic tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical condition. We offer a range of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound, ECG/EKG and cold lasers.
By leveraging our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we're able to efficiently produce diagnostic data about your pet's condition and provide immediate treatment options.
We perform tests and receive results quickly in our in-house laboratory so that your pet's symptoms can be diagnosed and treatment can begin as soon as possible.
Our pet pharmacy in Los Angeles is stocked with a wide selection of prescription medications and diets. This allows us quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
At our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing, which allows our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical conditions.
Using a radiograph (digital X-ray), we'll examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible to the human eye.
Since radiography is a safe, non-invasive and painless procedure that uses only very low doses of radiation, even pregnant females and very young pets can safely undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to assess organs and bones and to diagnose conditions including fractured bones, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, chronic arthritis and some tumors.
Our team of veterinary professionals can use diagnostic imaging to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
We use ultrasound imaging to produce images of the inside of the body by exposing parts of the body to high-frequency sound waves.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, we're able to see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs in addition to blood flowing through blood vessels.
Because our vets have this valuable technology available to them in our in-house lab, your cat or dog's condition can be diagnosed quickly and accurately and treatment can begin sooner.
At our vet lab in Los Angeles we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet and to diagnose their illness.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Los Angeles.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms.
Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.
Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.
Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
With digital X-rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Los Angeles vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
