On-Site Diagnostics for Fast Results
When your pet has an injury or is showing signs of illness, you want answers fast. Sky Canyon Animal Hospital has an in-house lab and digital radiography equipment, so we can diagnose your pet’s condition as quickly as possible.
Sky Canyon is proud to offer pet families the advantages of our in-house lab. Your Sky Canyon veterinarian may suggest blood, urine, or fecal testing to check for underlying conditions or parasites that may be impacting your pet’s health. We can process these tests on-site, giving us faster results, so we can create a treatment plan as soon as possible.
Examples of our diagnostic testing capabilities include:
Stool and urine samples
8-minute heartworm testing
15-minute results for blood panels
10-minute parvo testing
There are many advantages to digital x-rays, both for you and your pet. Digital radiography offers much clearer images, and your pet won’t be exposed to as much harmful radiation. We can also easily enlarge the images to take a closer look at a particular area without ordering additional x-rays, and we can transmit the images electronically if we need to consult with an outside specialist. The process is much faster, and the images can be viewed immediately, resulting in less wait time for you and less stress for your pet.
Digital radiography can help us diagnose a wide range of conditions, including:
Diseases affecting the organs
Some spinal cord diseases
