Ross Bridge Animal Hospital provides in-house diagnostic testing with same day results to pet owners in Hoover, Homewood, Birmingham, Bessemer, and Shannon, Alabama. In order to get a complete picture of your pet’s overall health, it is necessary to go beyond a physical, outward examination. Using our diagnostic capabilities, our trusted veterinarian can check your pet inside and out, from nose to tail, and uncover any underlying conditions or abnormalities that may not be noticeable from the outside.
Our scope of diagnostic checks includes CBC and blood chemistry panels, heartworm elisa testing, parvo elisa testing, giardia elisa testing, canine pancreatic lipase elisa testing, intestinal parasite testing, digital radiography, thoracic and abdominal ultrasound, as well as a full service reference laboratory that offers state of the art diagnostic services.
Results from diagnostic testing can detect infection and anemia, determine electrolyte status and hydration levels, evaluate kidney, liver, and pancreas function, screen for thyroid disease, check blood sugar levels, and more. Test results for most of these services are made available while the client waits, with the exception of the reference lab that is not located in-house. This quick turn-around time means that your pet can receive a diagnosis and start treatment on the same day.
If you live in the neighborhoods of Ross Bridge, Bluff Park, Lake Crest, Lake Cyrus, Trace Crossings, or Russet Woods, and you feel that something is not right with your pet, give us a call at Ross Bridge Animal Hospital and schedule an appointment for an evaluation.
