We have the most advanced and up-to-date laboratory equipment that can provide a “window” into your animal’s overall health. This gives our veterinarians an advantage and capability to diagnose the problems faced by your pet.
Laboratory testing is “a window into your pet’s body”, helping us see the health of the organ systems. Sometimes, a pet that appears healthy can often be hiding symptoms of disease. A physical exam may not be enough to diagnose your pet and additional diagnostic tests may be required.
White House Animal Hospital is equipped with a state-of-the art diagnostic laboratory with results often available the same day of the appointment. Complete blood counts, blood chemistry panels, electrolytes, urinalysis, fecal examinations, heartworm testing, ear discharge analysis, and skin scrapes are some of the many laboratory tests that we can perform at the hospital.
Whether performing bloodwork before a surgical procedure or on a yearly basis for maintaining good health, laboratory testing is one of the best ways to catch and treat problems before they become major and life-threatening.
Digital Radiography and Ultrasounds
We have the high frequency x-ray technology that provides better quality x-rays to help our veterinarians more accurately diagnose your pet’s condition. Our digital x-ray equipment provides the most advanced diagnostics available in this area. We use the same digital equipment found in 75% of the veterinary schools in the country including the University of Tennessee. Our ultrasound capability can provide a diagnostic tool for soft tissue problems that x-rays may not see.
