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.

      Chloe did an amazing job with grooming my dog. He is old, cranky, and thus has been kicked out of numerous grooming facilities. She handled him with kindness and respect! She had no issues and he looks adorable. Not only is he so cute, but he smells fantastic! I would HIGHLY recommend PVC to my friends & family!

      Watching our daughters dog while she is on vacation. Her dog got sick, and since he has a history of pancreatitis we felt he needed seen ASAP. Her regular vet was closed so we got in to see Dr Crabtree. We had not been there before. Dr Crabtree was so thorough and compassionate. He had to deliver bad news to us, and to our daughter on the phone. He offered help in making the dog comfortable until our daughter can get home. You can tell he truly cares for his patients and will go the extra mile to help. He is exceptional.

      If you are ever in need of a veterinarian, look no further than Pendleton Veterinary Clinic. When our Lab-Pit mix, Reba, fell ill a couple weeks ago, we decided to give them a try, as we had heard nothing but positive feedback about their office, and we had been terribly frustrated with several other offices we had previously visited. We will never go anywhere else. Kyle & Dr. Conner were absolutely phenomenal. They actually listened to everything we had to say about our dogs, took time to answer all our questions, were very straight forward and honest with all the information they gave us, and not only loved on our dogs, but didn't get irritated when our dogs wanted to love on them. We never once felt like we were being rushed out so they could get to the next appointment. The fact that they were very affordable was just a side bonus to the care and attention we received. We honestly left feeling like they cared about our pets as much as we did. Over the next several days, we received follow-up calls from the office asking if we had any questions or concerns, Kyle checking to see how the medication was working for Reba (because we told them she tends to have side effects), and Dr. Conner giving us the lab results and asking us to call back in and let them know how Reba was doing. We were absolutely blown away. We've never experienced anything like this when making a visit to the vet's office. We highly recommend Pendleton Veterinary Clinic to anyone in the area who loves their fur-babies!
