Because our pets can't talk, they can't alert us when they're not feeling well. They aren't able to tell us where it hurts or describe the symptoms they're experiencing. This makes managing their health a challenge. It's up to us to be the voice of our animal companions; to recognize when something may be wrong and to take the appropriate measures to address the problem in a timely manner. At Stockbridge Animal Hospital, we utilize a broad spectrum of veterinary diagnostic tools to conduct thorough and in-depth analyses of our patients and identify, diagnose and treat a variety of illnesses and injuries.
While every health assessment begins with a thorough physical exam, there are many illnesses and injuries that simply cannot be detected on the surface of the skin. What's more, many animals have a high tolerance for pain and may not exhibit any outward signs of a problem until it has progressed. When it comes to managing the health of our patients, early detection is key to a positive outcome. Beyond the external exam, our doctors utilize a number of tools to check your pet on the inside as well. These tools include blood work, urinalysis, fecal testing, radiology (x-ray) and more. When we can pinpoint what's happening inside your pet's body, we can reach a more timely and accurate diagnosis.
With many illnesses and diseases, time is of the essence. One of the most effective diagnostic services we offer at Stockbridge Animal Hospital is the use of our in-house laboratory. Having a lab within our hospital provides for the fast and accurate retrieval of test results. In most cases, we can have the results of your pet's test ready to evaluate before you ever leave our office. It is this prompt and accurate in-house diagnostic testing that allows us to better manage your companion's health and address time-sensitive issues promptly and efficiently.
If your pet is sick or injured, let us put our diagnostic tools and services to work. Rest assured that whatever may be ailing your pet, we've got the experience, tools and technology to get to the bottom of it once and for all so we can do what's necessary to get them back on the road to good health again as soon as possible.
