Diagnostics for Pets

What is Digital Imaging?

Digital imaging is one of the most effective methods of diagnosing a pet's medical issues. At Intermountain Pet Hospital, our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to get timely and accurate information on animals' physical health. Examples of digital imaging include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Digital X-rays
  • Digital pictures from microscopes

  • Heart and lung issues
  • Reproductive issues

Benefits of Digital Imaging

By enabling us to get more accurate diagnoses faster, digital imaging leads to more effective treatment for your pets and less time and money spent by you. We keep copies of images from our procedures, which allows us to better track the progress of a disease or condition.

Laboratory Diagnostics

To keep our imaging services affordable, we offer them at our hospital locations. 

As a full-service veterinary facility, Intermountain Pet Hospital offers a complete array of diagnostic tools. Because so many factors can affect an animal’s health, proper diagnosis is essential to effectively managing your pet’s condition.

While our doctors can detect several issues with a complete physical exam, they can't see what may be going on inside your pet. Because emergency situations require fast lab results, we've invested in a complete in-house laboratory diagnostic testing system. This system allows us to get immediate results and begin treatments quickly. This can make the difference between saving your pet's life and losing it. This technology is available at both our main hospital and our satellite location.

On-Site Laboratory Services

Our on-site laboratory allows us to obtain rapid results, so you don’t have an unnecessary wait or delay in your pet’s care, and we can begin treatment as quickly as possible. On-site services include:

  • CBC
  • Blood Chemistry
  • Skin cytology and scraping
  • Intestinal parasite exams
  • Semen evaluation
  • Blood Cytology
  • Cellular Cytology
  • Electrolytes
  • Blood clotting tests

Advanced Testing

Some conditions may require advanced laboratory testing. Intermountain has partnered with Idexx veterinary laboratory services to make this available, convenient, and affordable for our patients. In most cases, we have a turnaround of 24 hours for lab results.
