In Clinic Diagnostics
The in-house diagnostic capability at Clarke County Animal Hospital provides pet owners in the Grove Hill, Jackson, and Thomasville areas of Alabama with on-site routine testing of blood chemistry to determine the overall health of your pet. Our pets cannot communicate when something is wrong, in fact, they instinctively hide their abnormalities. Diagnostic tests can help discover a condition that may not be detectable during a regular physical examination.
Results from diagnostic testing can:
- Detect infection and anemia
- Determine electrolyte status and hydration level
- Check the immune system
- Test for fungal and bacterial infections
- Evaluate kidney, liver and pancreas function
- Screen the thyroid for Cushing’s or Addison’s disease
- Check blood sugar levels
Other routine tests that we are able to perform on-site include fecal analysis, urinalysis and testing for parasites.
Having this on-site capability enables our knowledgeable doctor to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pet’s complete health care needs from routine physical examinations to complicated diseases and cancer evaluation. It allows Dr. Sellers to diagnose your pet’s condition quickly and efficiently so that he can start the necessary treatment that will get your pet feeling better as soon as possible. If your pet requires advanced laboratory testing, we will immediately dispatch the specimen to our referral lab.
If you feel that something is not right with your pet, don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment.
