Without the ability to communicate with our pets, understanding possible health issues can be a challenging. West Point Animal Clinic has one of the most advanced diagnostic bloodwork systems available in veterinary medicine, and this aids our experienced veterinarians in making diagnoses. Blood chemistries, complete blood counts (CBC), electrolytes, thyroid testing, fecal analysis, and urinalysis can often tell us if your constant companion may have an issue that cannot be seen from the outside. Our blood work analyzers provide accurate results within minutes, meaning our doctors can begin treatment right away if necessary.
Blood chemistries indicate how well your pet’s liver, kidney, and pancreas function in your pet. A CBC can show your pet’s overall health, as red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are all determined, which can indicate certain infections, cancers and the blood’s ability to clot. Electrolytes provide information on whether an animal is dehydrated. Finally, thyroid testing can indicate issues including Cushing’s and Addison’s disease. Urinalysis can let our doctors know if your pet has certain infections, as well as diabetes.
At West Point Animal Clinic, we understand that you have a choice as to who provides healthcare to your pet. Our diagnostic capabilities, as well as experience and compassion, make our hospital an excellent choice for the life of your animal companion.
