In-House Medical and Diagnostic Laboratory
Very often, laboratory diagnostic tests help us determine the severity and cause of your pet's condition. Manning Veterinary Clinic is equipment with an in-house diagnostic laboratory capable of performing a complete series of diagnostic tests. We maintain a full in-house laboratory for running a wide range of tests on blood, urine, feces, and other samples. We are able to run most blood and urine tests, such as complete blood counts, chemistry screens, electrolyte levels, clotting times, and urinalysis. We also offer in-house cytology cultures when needed.
Because protecting your pet's health is our most important job, we collect and send samples to our reference laboratory partner, IDEXX laboratories.
We also have specialized equipment for measuring blood pressure and ocular pressures.
Digital radiography is an essential tool for diagnosing many ailments and illnesses in your pet - as it has the ability to penetrate tissues and show your pet's organs and bones. Radiographs are images used to detect conditions such as broken bones, tumors, bladder stones, and foreign bodies (toys, bone, or articles of clothing) in your dog or cat's stomach. Digital radiographs also are useful for diagnosing heart and lung problems and can be used to evaluate cats and dogs for hip and elbow displasia. Radiographs are a common diagnostic tool for examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, and other areas. If it is suspected that your pet has a fractured bone, has swallowed a foreign object, or is suffering from an internal problem, an X-ray can likely provide us with the information we require.
Because X-rays are such a valuable diagnostic tool, Manning Veterinary Clinic has invested in a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine. Our investment in digital X-ray technology reflects our commitment to offering a higher standard of care. There are many important advantages to digital X-rays:
If needed, radiographs can be emailed to a board-certified radiologist for immediate review through IDEXX Telemedicine.
In the event that we diagnosis is beyond our capabilities, we may offer you a referral to a specialist.
