Our veterinarians in Bonita Springs use diagnostic tests and tools in our in-house vet lab to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and develop treatment plans.
Veterinary Laboratory & Diagnostics
In diagnostic imaging, we use electromagnetic radiation and other technologies to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structure.
Our advanced tools at Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists help us to accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a range of services from digital radiology to ECG/EKG.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition, then provide immediate treatment options.
In-House Vet Lab & Pet Pharmacy
We perform tests and receive results quickly from our in-house veterinary laboratory, so that your pet's symptoms can be diagnosed and you can begin treatment as soon as possible. Our veterinary pharmacy is stocked with a wide selection of prescription diets and medications, allowing us quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostics in our in-house veterinary diagnostic laboratory. This allows our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
We can use a radiograph (digital X-Ray) to examine your pet's internal systems to reveal data that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is non-invasive, painless and safe. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Since the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is so low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs may be used to evaluate organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
Ultrasound imaging is used to the exposed part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time we can view the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs in addition to blood flowing through the blood vessels.
- CT Scans
CT/CAT (computed tomography) Scans combine computer technology with X-Ray images to enable us to identify and diagnose various diseases and disorders in your pet's body. They have become an essential imaging tool in veterinary medicine.
An electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) is a quick, easy procedure that may reveal valuable information if your veterinarian suspects your pet may have a heart disorder.
This can assist us in reaching a quick, accurate diagnosis for your pet, or lead to a recommendation for a cardiac ultrasound.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique that involves making small incisions to evaluate and treat many joint disorders, while reducing discomfort and improving recovery time when compared to conventional surgical techniques.
