Pet In-house Diagnostics in Toledo, OH

Sometimes, a physical exam isn’t enough for us to fully understand your pet’s health.


Pet In-house Diagnostics

We understand how important your pet is to your family, which is why we work so hard to offer the best services possible to keep your pet healthy.


Pet In-house Diagnostics

With laboratory testing, and digital X-rays, our veterinarians and staff can form a more comprehensive view of your pet’s health so we can treat them with the most effective medicine. At Heatherdowns Veterinary Clinic, we typically use lab testing with our annual exams, and will utilize X-rays as appropriate.

Lab Testing

Lab Testing

Our in-house lab is vital for providing us with fast results in urgent cases, yet we typically use an outside lab for routine blood work and disease screenings. This helps cut down on costs to you while also giving us precise results. For your pet’s annual wellness exam, we highly recommend bloodwork to get baseline health information. This helps us better pick up subtle changes that could indicate disease.

Lab tests we run include:

  • Complete blood counts
  • Blood chemistry panels
  • Fecal exams
  • Heartworm testing
  • Tick-borne disease screening
  • Urinalysis, if indicated
  • Skin testing

Digital X-Rays

Our digital X-ray machine is far superior to film. It delivers a crisp, clear image and emits significantly less radiation. Furthermore, it takes less time for us to produce the image, and its digital format means we can send it easily to specialists for a second opinion. So, when do we use our X-ray machine? Here are some instances:

  • Suspected fractures
  • Joint injuries or conditions
  • Locating abdominal obstructions
  • Neuromuscular problems
  • And more
