Electrocardiology (ECG): Early detection is crucial for effective heart disease treatment. Electrocardiology is the most effective tool to assess your pet's heart health. By performing an electrocardiogram (ECG), we can determine your pet's heart rate and rhythm, identifying any abnormalities in the process. If an arrhythmia or any other condition is detected, treatment can be initiated promptly.
Digital Radiology: Our veterinary diagnostic imaging employs advanced digital technologies operated by skilled professionals, ensuring the highest level of care for our patients.
Radiographs, or x-rays, use electromagnetic radiation to visualize internal structures, helping us discover diseases or injuries. This popular diagnostic tool can detect various abnormalities, such as skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental issues. It remains one of the most accurate and widely used non-invasive methods in the veterinary industry.
In some cases, specialized x-rays may require anesthesia. For example, orthopedic radiographs often require the patient to remain completely still for accurate results, necessitating sedation in most cases. The sedation duration is usually short, and patients recover swiftly.
In-House Laboratory Services: Eastside Animal Hospital offers comprehensive in-house diagnostics, including urinalysis, blood analysis, blood pressure monitoring, and more. Our veterinarians can conduct blood tests right in the hospital, enabling accurate diagnoses and determining the most appropriate treatment for your pet.
Common Veterinary Blood Tests:
Complete Blood Count (CBC): This examines the cellular components of the blood, determining the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin level, and hematocrit in your pet.
Chemistry Panel: This test assesses kidney function, liver function, and electrolyte levels.
