Imagine how easy it would be to manage the health of our animal family members if they could only speak. That way, whenever they were sick or injured, they could simply tell us what was bothering them, explain their symptoms and show us exactly where it hurts.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. It’s up to us – as responsible pet parents and veterinary professionals – to recognize the signs that something might be wrong and take the appropriate steps to diagnose and treat the problem in a timely manner. We have to be the voice for our animal friends and work hard to keep them happy and healthy.

Veterinary diagnostics allow us to accomplish this goal by letting us examine our patients from the inside out. Our doctors use these tools to learn exactly what’s happening inside your pet’s body so we can treat whatever the problem is, quickly and effectively. Lansdowne Animal Hospital offers a broad range of veterinary diagnostics to help us manage the ongoing health of our patients.

Our state of the art hospital is outfitted with cutting edge diagnostic tools and technology, including radiology (x-ray) and cardiology equipment. We also have our own in-house laboratory, where we are able to run a wide variety of tests and gather results quickly – often before you and your pet ever even leave the exam room. This is especially important for those illnesses and injuries for which a quick and accurate diagnosis and treatment is critical.

If your four-legged friend hasn’t been acting quite like his or herself lately and you’re concerned that something may be medically wrong, give us a call. Our professional diagnostics and expert treatment plans will have your loved one back on the path to good health again in no time!
