Pet Diagnostics

We employ cutting-edge technology to provide quick and accurate diagnostics.

Pet Diagnostics

Progressive Veterinary Services has in-house blood and urine analyzers by Idexx Laboratories. These include the VetLab Station, Procyte Dx hematology analyzer, Catalyst Dx chemistry analyzer, Sedivue, and SnapPro. The use of these analyzers in the clinic gives us results in as little as 10 minutes so we can quickly and effectively diagnose and treat your pet. If necessary, we have the ability to send out special testing to Idexx Reference Laboratory.

One of those special tests is our Early Detection Panel which provides us with important information regarding the following:

  • Platelet counts
  • Kidney, liver, and heart functions
  • Red and white blood cell counts
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Thyroid testing
  • Fecal antigen testing

By Identifying these diseases and their symptoms, we can develop a treatment plan up front, increasing the chances of effective treatment and long-term health care for your pet.

We also offer digital radiographs. Digital radiography reduces radiation exposure to pets and staff because it results in fewer retakes necessary (the image can be manipulated in our software system). Digital radiography systems also require less radiation per exposure to produce a higher-quality radiograph than film-based systems do. These images are then easily accessible and can be reviewed by the doctors with clients in the privacy of the exam room on our high-definition computer screens.
