Fast Testing & Precise Diagnoses
At West Chester Veterinary Medical Center, our veterinarians and board-certified specialists use diagnostic tests and tools in our in-house lab to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and customize treatment plans to your pet's needs.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
We use electromagnetic radiation and other technologies for diagnostic imaging. This allows us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structure.
At our West Chester office, we have advanced tools at our disposal to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound and cold lasers.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can provide more immediate treatment options and efficiently share information with your primary care veterinarian.
In-House Lab & Pharmacy
We perform tests and get results quickly in our in-house laboratory, so that we can diagnose your pet's symptoms and begin treatment as soon as possible. Our pharmacy is stocked with a range of prescription diets and medications, providing us quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services
At our Chester County lab, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostics to allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
