Diagnostics

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal family members can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, we rely on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion. Pendleton Veterinary Clinic is pleased to offer a full array of diagnostic services to better manage the health of your pet.

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your best friend even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

      Cannot recommend you enough. If you have a pet, bring them here! It's a small town and may be out of the way for some people, but for us it's close by. I couldn't be more thankful. Wonderful, highly competent, and caring staff for all your furry friend's needs!

      The staff is always very friendly and they do their best to get you in when needed. I recently had to have one of my cats put to sleep and the staff was excellent. That is a hard thing to do and they were very caring and helpful. Thank you for helping us with this difficult day.

      We recently moved to Pendleton and hadn’t looked for a new vet yet, our puppy Ace got sick this morning and our old vet couldn’t see us until Saturday. Dr Crabtree and Chloe were amazing with our boy! We walked in and they saw us right away. We got the medicine we needed and were on our way! We didn’t feel pressured to get a ton of tests or buy all the extras our previous vet talked us into. We will definitely be back and start a wellness plan with them!
