In-House Imaging and Laboratory
Let us help you put advanced diagnostic imaging tools to work for you and your pet. At Belle Forest Animal Hospital, we work closely with a leading digital radiology service that uses its state-of-the-art equipment to obtain imaging that can make a critical difference in your pet’s course of treatment.
We have state-of-the-art digital radiography to diagnose your pet’s illness. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, X-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet and your veterinarian.
In order to provide your pet with the best medical care, Belle Forest Animal Hospital uses the latest in radiology equipment as part of your pet’s diagnostic care. Digital radiographic images are far more detailed and offer a range of features that enhance your veterinarian’s ability to make an accurate diagnosis.
We have state-of-the-art lab equipment to check your pet’s vital organs. Our in-house lab can rapidly run a variety of highly diagnostic tests.
Performing preventative procedures as well as diagnosing emerging internal health issues requires a wide range of laboratory tests on blood, urine, feces, and biopsied tissue. Without timely access to precise laboratory test results it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis or assessment of your pet’s health.
Belle Forest Animal Hospital has a complete in-house laboratory. In many cases, our sophisticated instruments and diagnostic capabilities allow us to receive results within minutes.
At Belle Forest Animal Hospital we have a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine. We are able to non-invasively evaluate the internal organs as well as perform echocardiograms of the heart.
Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs. Often considered more exact than radiographs, ultrasound provides a movie of what is happening inside your pet’s body.
It is particularly useful in viewing your pet’s abdominal organs including the spleen, kidneys, liver, and gallbladder. It can also be used to evaluate heart functions, bladder scans and other areas such as the thyroid glands, testicles and mammary glands.
