Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our pets could simply come to us when they weren’t feeling well or had been injured in some way and just tell us what was bothering them, explain their symptoms and show us where it hurt? Imagine how much easier it would be to manage their health if they were able to communicate verbally. Unfortunately, companion animals have no way to tell us when they’re sick or hurt. What’s more, many animals can mask the signs of an underlying medical problem, exhibiting few outward symptoms until the problem has worsened.

It’s up to us, as pet owners and veterinary professionals, to identify the signs of a potential health problem and take the appropriate steps to address that problem in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Veterinary diagnostics are tools that allow us to look below the surface of the skin and learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body so that we can quickly and accurately diagnose and treat the underlying issue. The sooner we do so, the better the outcome for your pet.

Alpine at Noah’s Ark Animal Hospital offers a broad range of diagnostic services to better manage the ongoing health of our patients. When an external physical exam simply isn’t enough to get the answers we need about your pet’s health, we can turn to tools and technology to assist us. These tools – from routine blood work and urinalysis to advanced x-ray imaging and cardiology – provide our experienced team with the information they need to make a timely diagnosis.

Our hospital is also equipped with a convenient in-house laboratory where we are able to run a broad spectrum of diagnostic tests right on-site, achieving fast and accurate results. In many instances, we are able to have answers for you before you and your pet even leave the exam room. This is especially important for those injuries and illnesses for which a quick and accurate diagnosis is critical. Rest assured that whatever may be ailing your pet, we’re prepared to get to the bottom of it so we can get your pet back on the path to good health again as soon as possible.
