Wouldn’t it be great if our pets could talk? That way, whenever they weren’t feeling well, they could simply come to us, tell us what was wrong and we’d be able to address the problem right away.

Unfortunately, animals cannot communicate in this way, making managing their ongoing health a challenge at times. Couple this with the fact that many illnesses and injuries that can affect our animal companions cannot easily be detected on the surface of the skin, and we’re often left with quite the mystery on our hands. This is when veterinary diagnostics come into play.

These tools allow our experienced vets to get a clear picture of what’s happening inside your pet’s body. That way we are better able to achieve an accurate diagnosis and treat the problem in a timely manner. The sooner we can get the answers we need, the better the chances of a positive outcome for your pet.

Palomar Animal Hospital uses comprehensive diagnostic tools to effectively manage the ongoing health of our patients. Whether it’s a simple blood test or urinalysis or something more in depth, like an x-ray or ultrasound imaging, we’re well equipped and fully prepared to get to the bottom of whatever is ailing your animal companion.

Our hospital is outfitted with all of the diagnostic tools and technology we need to get fast and accurate results – often before you and your pet ever even leave the exam room!

If your loved one seems to be feeling a bit under the weather, or you suspect he or she has been injured in some way, don’t hesitate to come see us. Our diagnostic services will help us uncover the problem so we can get your pet back on the path to good health again as soon as possible.
