If you find out that your pet needs any type of diagnostic or surgical care, it can be a scary time. After all, your pet is part of your family. Because of this, it is important to ensure that you choose a quality, professional Jacksonville veterinarian to care for your pet during such a time. Having an experienced and knowledgeable veterinarian is critical for many diagnostic and surgical care procedures.
Our Advanced Diagnostic Procedures
At Pet Doctors of America, we serve the entire Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach areas with the most advanced veterinary procedures around. Collectively, our veterinarians have over 100 years of experience in the field. They are well versed in handling the wide range of health and medical issues that may arise with your pet.
Some of the advanced diagnostic and surgical care procedures we offer at ourJacksonville veterinary clinics include:
Full Digital X-Ray. We have advanced digital imaging technology, which allows us to obtain a higher-quality image, as well as providing processing flexibility. We also have the ability to enhance those images, allowing our veterinarians to view more detail without needing to take additional exposures. Our digital radiology procedures are all performed in-house, which helps provide us with an exceptional diagnostic image result, and minimizes the x-ray exposure for your pet.
Ultrasound. Just as in humans, at times pets may need an ultrasound. Through the ultrasound diagnostic medical imaging technology, our veterinarian is able to visualize your pet’s internal organs and gain more information about their size, structure or any pathological injury that may be present. The ultrasound is an important veterinary tool that can help to determine whether invasive surgery procedures are needed.
Echocardiograms. We have veterinarians experienced in taking and reading echocardiograms of your pets heart. These are important to evaluate your pets heart.
In-House Laboratory. Our Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach veterinary clinics are both equipped with an advanced in-house laboratory, and our veterinarians have immediate access to them as needed. We are also able to rely on results that are both fast and accurate. Services provided in our in-house veterinary laboratory include:
Complete Blood Counts
Common Blood Tests.
Our Jacksonville Jacksonville Beach veterinarians are able to conduct a variety of on-site blood tests that your pet may need. Most of these blood tests provide immediate results, including canine heartworm tests, feline heartworm tests, and feline leukemia testing. We also provide snap tests, which provide accurate results when screening for Ehrlichia and Lyme Disease. Additionally, we perform exams to check for intestinal parasites and the Parvo virus, using stool samples.
We also work with an outside laboratory for performing some other specialized tests, including those involving biopsy or tissue samples.
