Pet Diagnostic Methods Available 

If your pet is sick, injured, or in need of pet surgery, we want to ensure their utmost care. That is why we provide diagnostics prior to any treatment. Our diagnostic tools include digital x-ray technology, ultrasound, and endoscopy. Through digital x-rays we can detect bone and organ damage without performing exploratory surgery. This is ideal for pets that may have been in an auto accident or in a traumatic incident. Bloodwork, digital x-ray and ultrasound allow us to stage disease to determine if surgery is a viable option in treating your pet.

If your pet is suffering from internal pain or has a bulging mass, we can use ultrasound to take a look at their internal organs and surrounding tissue to fully evaluate them to choose the best diagnostic and treatment options.  We use endoscopy to determine if your pet has swallowed a foreign object or has a mass in their windpipe or stomach.  Endoscopy also gives us a non-invasive way to obtain biopsies from the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract and upper airway.   Each of these diagnostic methods allow us to care for your pet with pre-operative techniques, rather than depending on exploratory surgery to determine what is causing your pet pain or discomfort. This saves you money and reduces the amount of pain and healing time for your pet.

Benefits of an In-House Lab

By choosing the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County in Ferndale, NY you save both in time and money.  We can perform diagnostic testing right here at our animal hospital with our in-house lab, rather than having to send this information off to another lab. This reduces the time it takes to make a proper diagnosis, while bypassing the fees associated with third-party vet labs. The in-house lab is very valuable when your pet is sick because we can have the initial lab-work in 30 minutes and start treating your pet right away.  This can be life-saving and allows immediate treatment to reduce pain and discomfort and get the pet on the mend sooner.  When you want to help your pet improve their well being, choose the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County for your comprehensive pet wellness solution.
