It is an unavoidable fact that your pet will occasionally feel less than 100%. However, unlike a human, your dog or cat is unable to communicate exactly what ails them. Consequently, veterinarians must rely on a diverse array of diagnostic tools to identify the cause of an animal’s discomfort. Ranging from simple blood tests to advanced imaging, Calusa Veterinary Center is well-equipped to provide our doctors with the resources they need to confidently diagnose medical issues in your pet and prescribe treatments that will get them back to feeling their best as quickly as possible.
Our in-house laboratory has cutting-edge testing equipment from industry leaders IDEXX Laboratories that allows us to quickly run tests ranging from routine blood screens to comprehensive intestinal parasite exams. Additionally, we have deep relationships with leading reference laboratories, including Antech Diagnostics, for those instances in which we require less urgent testing, complex testing for biopsies or unique analyses.
Calusa’s diagnostic toolkit does not end there! We have digital radiography equipment and on-site ultrasound capabilities for those pets who would benefit from such internal imaging. Further, our relationships with board-certified veterinary radiologists ensure that your pet will receive the highest level of care when they need it most.
Please do not hesitate to ask your veterinarian lots of questions during your pet’s exam! During diagnostic cases, our team works hard to clearly communicate the science and biology behind what ails your dog or cat. Your doctor will be happy to describe the situation and outline what steps will be taken to appropriately care for your pet.
