Regular check-ups are an important tool for identifying problems before they become more serious. Even when pets are in pain, they don’t have a voice to reveal it. However, an experienced veterinarian can check for some of the common ailments and determine if there is a medical problem. If your pet seems to be unusually lethargic or is exhibiting troubling behaviour, schedule a visit with our veterinarian at Gander Veterinary clinic. We offer pet diagnostic services in Gander.
In-house Lab Testing
We perform most of our diagnostic services at our clinic using the lab equipment from IDEXX Laboratories. Our equipment allows the veterinarians to get blood results on the same day to help them diagnose faster. This also eases the treatment procedure. Our technicians can draw blood samples and check the functioning of kidneys, liver and pancreas. We can also have a closer look at the performance of white and red blood cells, check thyroid functioning, run urine tests and detect feline leukemia/FIV in cats using this equipment.
We run tests on the morning of the surgery, and get results within an hour. Pre-anesthetic blood testing is crucial, even for young animals, to get the complete picture of the pet’s health prior to using any anesthetic. It also helps our veterinarians choose an anesthetic regime that suits your pet’s needs. We conduct routine pre-anesthetic blood testing on any animal receiving an anesthetic.
Radiology or X-ray is performed in-house using our digital radiology system that provides us with a clear picture that can be viewed by our veterinarians. We conduct muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary system X-ray for your pets.
At Gander Veterinary Clinic, we understand that certain diagnostic testing requires veterinarians with specialized training. Therefore, we may refer your pets to specific hospitals and colleges for specific diagnostics and surgeries. Please call us to discuss your concerns.
