Developing More Effective Treatments from Pet Diagnostics

With our diagnostic capabilities, we’re better able to analyze and diagnose any illness or condition, which in turn, allows us to prescribe a more effective treatment plan. At The Village Vets of Stone Mountain, we have a full, in-house laboratory as well as digital X-rays and ultrasound, which all work together to develop a comprehensive understanding of your pet and their ailment.

Pet Diagnostics in Stone Mountain: Vet and Technician Review X-Ray

Laboratory Lessons

We learn a lot from our lab. It can run a variety of tests all in-house which means we can find answers and solutions within a matter of minutes. We commonly run the following tests:

  • CBCs (complete blood counts)
  • Blood chemistry panels (to analyze components
    such as proteins, glucose, or electrolyte levels)
  • Urinalysis (to assess kidney and bladder health)
  • Fecal exams (to check for intestinal parasites)
  • Cytology (analyzing skin cells for abnormalities)
  • Biopsies (to examine tissue for cancer cells)

Advanced Imaging Technology

With digital X-rays and ultrasound, we’re able to get an internal view of your pet’s skeletal structure and organs to detect abnormalities. X-ray and ultrasound work in tandem providing us a full, complete picture of your pet’s internal workings. While digital X-rays give us a detailed, static view of bones and other structures, ultrasound lets us see organs and the abdominal cavity all in motion. We commonly use X-ray and ultrasound for the following:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Locating foreign objects
  • Detecting kidney or bladder stones
  • Assessing organ health and function
  • Monitoring a pet’s pregnancy
  • And so much more

We had an overall great experience from the scheduling of the surgery, throughout Echo's procedure and the follow up once we returned home. The team at The Village Vets was genuinely invested in Echo from start to finish!
