Our Service

Pet Lab & Diagnostics

We rely on veterinary diagnostics to provide the information we need because our dogs are unable to communicate with us. With the use of these instruments and technology, we are able to thoroughly assess the interior and external health of your pet.

Pet Lab & Diagnostics

Here at Gentle Care Veterinary Hospital, we use some of the most cutting-edge veterinary diagnostic technology to give our clients’ pets the finest possible medical care. Diagnostic testing is frequently needed to determine the underlying cause of your pet’s sickness. We can assist you in getting the results you require without further delay because we have onsite radiology and an internal medical laboratory.

A faster diagnosis leads to faster treatment

By providing lab and diagnostics services on-site, a diagnosis can be made for your pet much more quickly, allowing for faster treatment. We want the animals we care for and their owners to be content and confident that they are in capable hands. Our veterinarians will go over all of your pet’s treatment choices and associated costs with you.

Veterinary Radiology

X-rays are the most prevalent and practical diagnostic technique in veterinary medicine. Our veterinarians require an accurate diagnosis in order to treat an animal properly. Using electromagnetic radiation to penetrate the tissue, radiographs can reveal the pet’s bones and internal organs. Among other things, X-rays can be used to show damaged bones, heart issues, and ingested items.

Veterinary In-House Laboratory

We can test blood, urine, and faeces samples ourselves thanks to our on-site lab. These tests’ data, just as ultrasound or X-ray images, are crucial for making a diagnosis. These findings can be used to evaluate your pet’s health and identify any illnesses or other disorders, like canine influenza.

Urinalysis – We can identify any abnormal elements in the urine, such as sugar, protein, blood, or white blood cells, by testing your pet’s urine at our lab. Our ability to diagnose an ailment in your pet might also be aided by the concentration or dilution of their urine. A urinalysis can be used to identify diabetes, renal issues, urinary tract infections, dehydration, and other medical concerns.

Comprehensive Bloodwork –Our veterinarians may advise getting bloodwork done in sick pets or before surgery to more accurately assess your pet’s organ health. The most frequent tests are a CBC and a biochemistry. Blood glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver function, among other systems, will all be represented by values that biochemistry will supply. Values from the CBC will be used to look for indicators of inflammation or anaemia.

In some circumstances, additional focused tests like thyroid levels, ACTH stimulation, or a GI panel may be performed. There are several alternatives available to help with disease diagnosis and management, and your doctor will go into great detail about what each test offers and what the results mean.
