The Best Diagnostic Care For Your Pet

Your pet is part of your family, and when he or she is experiencing a health issue, it's important that the problem is diagnosed quickly, and accurately. The veterinary staff at MTAH in Winston Salem, NC is experienced in knowing what symptoms to look for, and which diagnostic tests to run in order to treat all types of feline and canine illnesses.

Time is of the essence when it comes to performing veterinary laboratory diagnostics. That's why Mount Tabor Animal Hospital performs many labs directly in-house, and uses only top-end laboratories when outsourcing..

In-House Laboratory Testing Services

The in-house laboratory at MTAH provides us with the opportunity to perform many diagnostic lab tests on the spot, such as:

Blood chemistries
Blood clotting profiles
Complete blood counts
Electrolyte diagnostics
Heartworm test
Intestinal worm test
Giardia test
Testing for Feline Leukemia
Testing for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
Digital radiographs (e.g. digital X-rays)

Outsourced Laboratory Testing Services

When necessary, there are certain lab tests which must be performed outside of Mount Tabor Animal Hospital. We carefully monitor the test specimens and provide a fast turn around time on results. Outsourced lab tests may include:

Allergy testing
Endocrine function diagnostics
Culture & sensitivity
Therapeutic drug levels
Autoimmune testing
Tick serology
Vaccine titers
Liver function test

The Best in Veterinary Ultrasound Technology

The veterinarians of Mount Tabor Animal Hospital utilize a highly-advanced ultrasound machine that produces impressive imaging quality, which allows for the best advanced diagnostic care for your pet. In addition to providing the best imaging equipment for your pet directly in our office, our staff also receives hands-on clinical education and training by the board certified specialists at the Sound-Eklin® Academy of Veterinary Imaging.

An ultrasound exam is a way of looking inside your pet's body to examine areas such as abdominal, vascular, and musculoskeletal regions without having to perform surgery. MTAH may recommend an ultrasound exam of your pet for one of these reasons:

Abnormal blood work Recheck on previous problem
Unexplained prolonged bouts of vomiting or diarrhea Weight loss with no change in eating habits
Baseline ultrasound for future examination (geriatric pets) Cancer staging
Chronic infections Fluid in chest or abdomen
Change in urinary habits Pregnancy
Pre-surgical exam Exam to permit biopsy

Ultrasound Exams at Mount Tabor Animal Hospital, Winston-Salem, NC

The ultrasound exam is performed on a padded lift-table while your pet lies quietly on his/her side in our exam room for approximately 20 to 30 minutes at a time. For the majority of the exam, minimal pressure is applied. Sometimes, to capture a good image, your pet may experience a slight "pushing" against their skin, or they may wiggle a little when we image a "ticklish" spot. Because of this, your pet may be gently restrained by one of our veterinary assistants. However, most pets simply enjoy the undivided attention, and extra ear rubs during the exam.

After the exam, the veterinarian will discuss your pet's results with you and make recommendations for follow-up care and treatment.

Digital X-Rays to Diagnose Your Pet

When your pet needs an X-ray, Mount Tabor Animal Hospital offers digital X-rays. This is a form of X-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. It's the fastest, most accurate way to use X-ray technology when it becomes necessary.

Specialist Veterinary Radiologist Consultations

When an advanced radiology need arises, the primary care veterinarians at MTAH work with the veterinary radiologist specialists of Antech Imaging.

These veterinary specialists are on call to assist our veterinarians with advanced radiological consultations, and this is just one more way we are able to offer comprehensive diagnostic care for your pet when they need it.
