PetCare Veterinary Clinic

Diagnostic Care

Do you suspect that your pet has an underlying illness or untreated injury? Trust PetCare Veterinary Clinic to locate the problem.

In-House Laboratory

Sometimes a simple examination is not enough to catch underlying health concerns. With our laboratory services, PetCare Veterinary Clinic is able to take a deeper dive into your pet’s well-being. Lab work will help us better understand the animal’s immune system. These services will also help to identify infections and discover any problems with hydration or anemia.

Our state-of-the-art facility and knowledgeable staff allow us to perform these tests:

  • Heartworm testing
  • Blood chemistry panels
  • Fecal examinations
  • Urinalysis

Emergency situations may require further testing - which we can perform onsite. There’s no need to hop from clinic to clinic until you find the answers you’re looking for. Our comprehensive list of services will see you through to the root of your pet’s problem.

Of course, once the health concern has been diagnosed, our team will create a treatment plan that works for you and is tailored to your pet. Give us a call to get started.

Digital Radiography

X-rays give us a closer look at an animal’s tissues, bones, blood vessels, and organs. This technology sends electromagnetic waves through an animal’s body. As these waves interact with the interior makeup of the animal, we obtain a visual picture of what is happening inside its body.

As a diagnostic procedure, X-rays are safe and non-invasive and a great way to better understand your pet’s health. The only requirement is that your pet remains motionless for a few moments. In most cases, sedation is not required.

This technology allows us to accurately diagnose a range of potential problems, such as:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Bone cancer
  • Spinal injuries
  • Enlarged heart
  • Arthritis
  • Dental decay
  • Pneumonia
  • Bone infections

If you think your pet could benefit from digital radiography, get in touch with the team at PetCare Veterinary Clinic. We’ll locate any problems with your pet’s health and create a treatment plan to reduce pain and improve wellness.


X-rays use light rays to create a static picture of an animal’s internal workings. Ultrasounds, on the other hand, use sonic rays to provide a moving image of what is going on. Both tests are helpful and give us a different look at your pet’s health. Often, we use ultrasounds when we suspect an animal is experiencing the following conditions:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Intestinal cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Abdominal tumors
  • Cysts
  • Heart conditions
  • Bladder stones

Of course, the most common use of ultrasound technology is determining whether or not an animal is pregnant.

If your pet is anxious or unable to stand still for a few moments, we might need to administer sedation. Otherwise, the procedure is simple and straightforward. Most importantly, it’s non-invasive. In some cases, ultrasounds even help us to avoid unnecessary surgery.
