Our Diagnostic Services 

At our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing to support our vets' ability to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues. 

  • Radiography (Digital X-Rays)

    With a radiograph (digital X-Ray), we're able to examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may not be visible from the outside. 

    A safe, painless, non-invasive procedure, radiography uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even very young pets and pregnant females can have this procedure. 

    Radiographs can be used to evaluate organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, fractured bones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.  

  • Ultrasound

    The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.

    With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body. 

    Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.

    Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner. 

    We have a radiologist come in to Limehouse Veterinary Clinic once a week to perform ultrasounds. 

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

    This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health. 

  • Fecal Exams

    A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Glendale.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms. 

    Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.

    Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.

    Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.  

  • ECG / EKG

    If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).

    This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
