Advanced Diagnostics

Diagnostic services allow us to take a closer look at the internal workings of your pet and can assist our veterinarians in determining any underlying conditions. Walnut Creek Veterinary Clinic has the most current tools to help us make an accurate diagnosis so we can effectively treat and prevent medical issues.

In-House Laboratory

Walnut Creek Veterinary Clinic’s in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, urinalysis and parasite testing. Having a lab on-site saves time, money, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait overnight for results—meaning your pet gets a diagnosis and needed treatment sooner.

In addition to routine blood tests, we also offer screenings for FeLV/FIV, pancreatitis, fecal testing for parasites, urinalysis, ear cytology and the 4DX Heartworm test that also screens for common tick-borne diseases: covers anaplasmosis, ehrlichia, and Lyme disease.

When specialized diagnostics and consultations are needed, we do utilize outside commercial veterinary laboratories.

Digital Radiology (X-Rays)

Radiographs, or x-rays, are a diagnostic tool that allows us to see a snapshot of the internal organs. X-rays are often used to detect foreign body ingestion, urinary bladder stones, abdominal or chest tumors, heart size and shape, changes in the lungs that could indicate cancer or pneumonia, and many other disease processes.
We can usually do radiographs during a “sick” office visit and have immediate results, although at times we will send images to a board-certified radiologist for interpretation. X-rays are a painless procedure and sedation is usually not necessary.

Dental radiographs are also digital but must be done under anesthesia.
