Diagnostic Testing

At Menlyn Animal Clinic we have the capability of performing a wide range of diagnostic tests in our hospital to assist our veterinarians in determining the cause of your dog or cat’s illness.

In-House Laboratory
Our extensive in-house laboratory allows us to have results of many blood tests in a short period of time.  We are equipped to perform complete blood counts and chemistry analysis, tick-borne disease testing, thyroid tests, urinalysis and faecal examinations, and blood tests on your pet for electrolyte evaluation, blood count analysis, liver and kidney function.

Digital Radiology
Radiographs, or X-rays, help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems.  Our on-site equipment allows us to provide the images that assist in diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner.  We utilize state of the art digital radiography (x-ray) equipment, which provides quicker, clearer and faster images than film x-ray.  Like a digital photo, a digital radiograph can be manipulated after it is taken, allowing our team to highlight the image in ways that are not possible with traditional film x-ray.  Digital radiology is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals to contaminate water systems and it decreases radiation exposure to your pet as images can be manipulated via a computer as opposed to having to take additional x-rays.

Digital Dental Radiology
Digital dental radiography allows us to visualize the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone.  This allows us to diagnose bone loss or hidden disease that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may not have been visible during our thorough oral exam prior to the dental procedure.

Ultrasound
Ultrasound is a non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. As the sound waves travel into the body they return three dimensional images (length, width and depth) of certain internal organs allowing for depth dimension of the organ and good visualization of the edges of the organ.  Ultrasound returns results in real time.  Pregnancy exams utilizing ultrasound technology are also available.
