In House Blood Work
We perform a range of blood tests at West Texas Emergency Vet. This gives us the opportunity to help diagnose and treat your pet as fast as humanly possible.
We offer routine in-house blood testing for the following:
If your pet needs specialized tests, we use a courier to send samples to laboratories. This can delay results depending on the test.
Through our animal ultrasound service, we can examine organs more closely and at a greater depth than other imaging machines. If your pet has heart or abdominal issues, we can use our ultrasound to help decide whether your pet needs surgery or further testing. The benefit of our ultrasound is that it can be taken during the evaluation, which means you will know right away if there are any abnormalities. Our staff is highly trained in animal ultrasound procedures, so you can be sure your pet will be kept comfortable while we get the proper images.
With ultrasound we can detect:
- Signs of pancreatitis
- Injuries of the muscles, tendons, and cartilage
- Fluid in the abdomen
- Abnormalities of the heart
- Cysts and tumors
During the ultrasound procedure
First, your pet will be prepped by shaving the area being examined. This makes the ultrasound wand more receptive to imaging. After a special jelly is applied to the skin, the ultrasound will then be performed. We carefully examine your pet and based on our findings will discuss a treatment or plan of action.
Ultrasounds are non-invasive, painless, and provide a clear image of your pet’s body. Many pets enjoy the massaging feel of the ultrasound wand, so your pet may not even need to be sedated.
