Effective Pet Medicine Diagnostics: Woodbury Animal Hospital, Woodbury MN

Other Common diagnostic procedures include:

  • X-rays
  • Blood pressure
  • IOP – a measurement of fluid pressure within the eye, essential to diagnosing and treating glaucoma.
  • Echocardiogram and EKG with a board certified cardiologist

Our veterinarians also have the ability to transfer all radiographs and lab test results to other experts for second opinions, or if referring your case to a specialty practice for further evaluation and treatment.

As with every procedure, our hearts lie with our patients when we run diagnostics. You can expect the utmost attention to detail as we work to quickly locate and identify health conditions in your animal companion.

The patience, compassion, understanding, and humanity that you showed me goes far beyond any definition of professional ethic. I am in your debt. I thank you.
