Fast Testing & Precise Diagnoses
Our Apple Valley veterinarians use diagnostic tests and tools in our in-house lab to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and customize treatment plans to your pet's needs.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
We use digital x-rays and ultrasounds for diagnostic imaging. This allows us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structure.
At Bear Valley Animal Hospital, we have advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound and blood work.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities and our bloodwork and other laboratory tests, we can provide more immediate treatment options.
In-House Lab & Pharmacy
We perform tests and get results quickly in our in-house laboratory so that we can diagnose your pet's symptoms and begin treatment as soon as possible.
Our pharmacy is stocked with a range of prescription diets and medications, providing us quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house laboratory, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostics to allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, painless, and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and some tumors.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
Our hospital has the capability to perform laboratory work like blood tests, urinalyses, and snap tests in-house to receive same-day results, and our team is able to send out laboratory work to Idexx Laboratories to test blood, urine, feces, tissue samples, etc. These tests give our doctors the information necessary to confirm and rule out diagnoses and ensure the proper care and treatment for your pet.
