Diagnostics Where Your Pets Become Our Family

Scottsdale Veterinary Diagnostics

Understanding Your Pet’s Health

It can be difficult to understand what’s wrong with your pet when they’re not feeling their best. Because they can’t tell us what’s wrong, we rely on the latest diagnostic technologies to help us diagnose their ailment. We use a variety of diagnostic tools to get a closer look at your pet’s health, both when they’re feeling under the weather and as part of the normal course of their routine wellness exams. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility, we take advantage of our in-house diagnostic capabilities to deliver faster results.

Diagnostic Capabilities at McDowell Mountain Animal Hospital

We are proud to offer a variety of diagnostic tools for efficient diagnoses of your pet’s conditions.

This includes:

  • Blood testing
  • Biopsy
  • Bacterial and fungal cultures
  • Cytology
  • Digital x-ray
  • Fecal checks
  • Heartworm testing
  • Hormonal assays
  • Ophthalmology
  • Ultrasound
  • Urinalysis
  • CT scan

Each of these tests tells us a lot of valuable information about your pet’s health that we otherwise may not discover with a physical exam. We keep careful track of your pet’s laboratory testing to help us establish a clear, comprehensive medical history which can help us guide your pet’s preventative care.

Digital Radiology & Ultrasound Imaging

At McDowell Mountain Animal Hospital, we make use of both digital x-ray and ultrasound technology to get a look at your pet’s internal systems when a physical exam doesn’t tell us everything we need to know about your pet’s condition.

X-rays are typically used to image the solid or dense parts of your pet’s body, while ultrasounds are recommended for use on soft tissues, like internal organs. Depending on your pet’s condition, we’ll recommend either digital x-rays or an ultrasound to get a better view. Because we are able to offer both forms of radiography in house, you won’t need to wait for another appointment at an outside clinic or lab in order to get your results.

Digital x-rays can be extremely helpful when your pet needs dental care. Our in-house x-ray imaging can take picture of your pet’s teeth and jaw to get a better idea of the degree of dental care your pet will need. We perform full mouth dental x-rays to help us get a clearer picture of what is ailing your pet's oral health. Full mouth x-rays performed in-house also allows out team to begin dental treatment faster. We’ll use the resulting images to guide our dental team if or when your pet needs dental surgery.
