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.

      They got my dog Clifford in for a grooming on super short notice, and I seriously could not be happier. He smells and looks amazing. The staff has always been sweet and friendly but today’s experience was just wonderful!! Thank you PVC!

      I abruptly stopped in today for an emergency visit for my kitten. We had never been there, and I did not have an appointment or give them any notice. I was extremely upset and they were so incredibly helpful and nice. They took my kitten back immediately and observed him for over an hour. Everyone was so helpful and nice, it meant so much to me that they would look at him since my regular vet was over 30 minutes away. I definitely recommend them and will be returning! Thank you again for all your help and for dealing with my hysterics.

      We had to say goodbye to our almost fifteen year old Shiba Inu recently and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the care and compassion shown by the staff here. It's a very painful thing to do but they were patient and kind and sweet and helpful through the process and frankly through every visit we made to the office. He wasn't exactly the easiest dog to examine or care for sometimes but they never gave up on him. Love and light to your whole staff! You are appreciated.
