Diagnostic


Blood Test, Urinalysis, Fecal, Hormone Test, etc.

Routine blood work is an extremely important tool for detecting and diagnosing problems in your pet that we may not see otherwise. Therefore, we’re running an ongoing promotion on blood work to emphasize this service and help owners care for their pets. We also perform various tests to diagnose many diseases such as ACTH test, Ringworm PCR, Diarrhea PCR.

Pet Radiology

Vermont Animal Hospital is equipped with the latest digital pet x-ray technology to provide your pet with the most accurate diagnosis possible. With this technology, we can quickly produce high quality images of your pet’s internal structures in a matter of seconds. We often rely on X-rays to evaluate the musculoskeletal and reproductive systems, heart, lungs, and gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. In addition, we are capable of performing radiographic contrast studies such as barium series (stomach, intestines, etc.) and positive contrast cystograms (urinary bladder) to better define problems with the gastrointestinal and urinary systems.


Ultrasound for Pets

Vermont Animal Hospital uses modern ultrasound equipment, similar to that found in human hospitals when diagnosing your pet. An ultrasound uses sound waves to create an image in real time of organs in the chest or abdomen. This is especially helpful in pregnancy evaluations and the diagnosis of many other medical conditions. Biopsies may be performed using ultrasound guidance as well, which helps to eliminate the need for a more invasive surgical procedure. Ultrasound rarely requires sedation and generally is done on an outpatient basis. We also have an ultrasound specialist available to come to our hospital for more complicated cases.
