Veterinary Diagnostics in Portland
Fast & Accurate Results for Your Pet’s Health
It’s essential that we understand what is ailing your pet before we treat them. Pets can’t tell us what exactly is bothering them, so the Portland veterinary team at Pacific Veterinary Hospital uses the latest technology and state-of-the-art techniques to diagnose your pet. Since we’re able to diagnose what’s ailing your pet quickly, we are able to treat them faster and get them back to living their happiest, healthiest lives.
As part of our focus on preventative medicine, regular diagnostic testing is highly encouraged in your pet’s wellness exams. By testing your pet regularly, we’re able to understand a lot more about your pet’s overall health and what is “normal” for your pet’s day to day health. This helps us spot when there are changes in your pet’s health before it becomes a bigger problem. Our Portland veterinary team will use all of the diagnostic tools at their disposal to ensure that your pet is getting the treatment they need as soon as they need it.

In-House Laboratory Testing
Our fully equipped in-house laboratory means you’ll get fast results without having to wait for an outside lab diagnosis. We’re able to perform tests like blood-work, and urinalysis, as well as other tests, which tell us a lot about what’s going on with your pet’s health. We’ll use laboratory testing as part of your pet’s regular wellness exams to establish a baseline of health for your pet.
When laboratory tests or physical exams indicate that there’s something going on in your pet’s body underneath the fur, digital radiology can help us pin-point the problem at hand. We use digital X-rays and ultrasounds to look at the bones and organs of your pet. Unlike older technologies, digital radiology is much faster and produces clearer images than those developed on film. Digital radiology is not invasive and is pain-free, which is ideal for the comfort and safety of your pet. The more quickly we are able to diagnose your pet’s problem, the more quickly we can get them treated.
