Diagnostic imaging is performed with the aid of electromagnetic radiation and other technologies. This enables us to generate extremely detailed photos of the interior structures of your pet.
We have modern diagnostic tools at WellPet Humane to assist in accurately diagnosing your pet's medical problems. We provide a range of services, including digital radiography, ultrasound, and bloodwork.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can quickly and accurately determine your pet's condition and provide prompt treatment alternatives.
We conduct tests and obtain findings swiftly in our in-house laboratory, allowing us to quickly assess your pet's symptoms and begin treatment.
Our Doraville pet pharmacy is stocked with a variety of prescription diets and medications, ensuring that we have quick access to any medications your pet may require while in our care.
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, which enables our veterinarians to make an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical problems.
We can examine your pet's internal systems using a radiograph (digital x-ray) to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a non-invasive, painless procedure. It makes use of extremely low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required for radiography is so low, it is safe to perform this procedure on pregnant females and very young pets.
Radiographs are used to evaluate bones and organs and to diagnose conditions such as broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, and certain types of tumors.
Diagnostic imaging enables creates extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
Ultrasound imaging produces images of the inside of the body by exposing a portion of the body to high-frequency sound waves.
We can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels because ultrasound images capture them in real-time.
Having this valuable technology helps to diagnose and treat your dog or cat's condition more quickly.
At our veterinary laboratory in Doraville, we are able to perform a variety of routine and specialized blood tests to assess your pet's health and diagnose illness.
CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile are some of the most frequently performed veterinary blood tests.
Urinalysis is a critical diagnostic test that provides critical information about the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine to your veterinarian.
Urinalysis is primarily used to determine the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be used to detect problems with other organ systems and is critical for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
This is an extremely useful diagnostic test for healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
A fecal exam is a microscopic examination of your pet's feces that can be performed at our on-site veterinarian laboratory in Doraville.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any gastrointestinal infections that may be compromising your pet's health, as well as your family's health. Fecals enable your veterinarian to diagnose intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms in your pet.
Parasites can make pets feel uneasy and irritable, and can even result in more serious conditions. Some are even transmissible to humans.
Due to their residence in your pet's gastrointestinal tract, these parasites are frequently hidden from view. They are only detectable through a fecal examination.
Fecal examinations should be included in every pet's routine wellness exam on an annual basis.
If your cat or dog has periodontal disease, the majority of the damage occurs below the gum line, where it is difficult to see. Our veterinarians use digital dental X-rays to assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-rays are more pet-friendly. They enable our team of veterinary professionals to examine your cat or dog's teeth roots, bones, and internal anatomy.
The risk of radiation exposure to your pet is significantly lower with digital X-Rays than with traditional X-Ray technology. We can see beneath the surface of your pet's gum line in order to thoroughly evaluate each tooth.
This technology enables your Doraville veterinarian to view results immediately and then review them on a computer screen.
