Physical exams tell us a lot about an animal’s condition, but using the right diagnostic tools can reveal more.

Standard blood tests (CBC/complete blood counts) show whether the results are within the normal range and, if not, where to start looking for intervention and treatment procedures and plans.

Other diagnostic tests can help identify problems that are not visible through a physical exam, blood tests, biopsies, or urine or stool tests.

Radiology (X-rays) uses radiation to produce energy that penetrates the body to show underlying structures such as bones and soft tissues (organs). Radiology is considered a standard test for most clinics.

X-rays allow for rapid imaging and can help diagnose many conditions, such as fractures, heart failure, bladder stones, and some types of cancer. However, radiology may not reveal brain tumors, prolapsed spinal discs, and more complex issues.
