Diagnostics

 

Has your pet or one of your farm animals been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With animals, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal companions can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, the team at Willow Bend Animal Clinic relies on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of the underlying condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your companion’s wellness care.

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside an animal’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your animal friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Willow Bend Animal Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get them back on the path to good health again.

      Shout out to Willow Bend Animal Clinic for taking such good care of our puppy Bear. This was the second time they have pulled him through. First with parvovirus and now mushroom poisoning. We are very fortunate to have such skilled and compassionate veterinarians and staff in our area.

      We have never been a client, but found ourselves in an emergency last night and in an area with no large animal coverage. Dr. Hunt came quickly and took care of my daughters horse. He was very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable and took care of the situation. He had one of the best “bedside” manners of any large vet I have ever met. We may have never been a client before but we definitely will be now.

      My 2 big babies were neutered last week and Willow Bend did a phenomenal job! They recovered so nicely and quickly. While they were there, the vet noticed they had an ear infection and treated it right there on the spot. I appreciate the professionalism and love they put into their job. We will be back for all of our future needs! ❤️ 🐾

      Took my two puppies for an emergency walk in appointment, and could not have been happier. Dr. Hunt was thorough and great with my dogs. I appreciated the speed of appointment, care of all the staff and how friendly everyone was. What a great first experience with this practice.
