Diagnostic Services

Providing for your pet's complete medical needs is Main Street Veterinary Hospital and Dental Clinic's goal. Our in-house diagnostic capabilities allow us to obtain immediate answers to help your pet feel better faster. Because we can perform these diagnostic tests here at our hospital, we can help minimize the travel and stress associated with referrals to specialists. And if your pet does require a referral to a specialist, the information provided by the tests we have performed at our hospital allows you to get the most benefit from your consultation. In addition, non-invasive diagnostic tests like ultrasound and endoscopy can prevent costly and painful exploratory surgical procedures.

Digital Radiography

We are proud to offer advanced digital radiographic technology for your pet's health and well-being. Radiographs ("X-rays") are one of the most useful tests for diagnosing different types of medical problems. Radiography can be used to determine the location and severity of fractures, identify symptoms of heart disease, detect foreign bodies in your pet's stomach and much more. To aid in the diagnosis of your pet's condition, Main Street Veterinary Hospital owns an advanced  digital radiography machine. Digital radiography allows us to produce high-quality, high-resolution images faster than traditional film X-rays. That means less time on the X-ray table and less stress for your pet. Digital images can be easily emailed or saved to a disk, allowing for fast consultations with specialists when needed.

Ultrasound

Main Street Veterinary Hospital has invested in the latest veterinary ultrasound equipment to quickly and accurately diagnose your pet's health issues. Ultrasound is a pain-free, completely non-invasive test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time moving image of your pet's internal organs.
Ultrasound is used for a wide range of diagnostic procedures. It is particularly useful for viewing your pet's abdominal organs and bladder, performing pregnancy exams and evaluating heart function.
To make this technology as valuable and convenient as possible for you, our veterinarians have undergone focused training in performing and evaluating ultrasound exams and are able to offer highly detailed images for standard veterinary fees. Since ultrasound produces digital images, your pet's scan can be easily emailed to a board certified radiology specialist if an additional opinion is needed.

Endoscopy

An endoscope is a long, flexible tube equipped with a lighted video camera on the end. Images from the camera are transmitted to a monitor, and the endoscope acts as the veterinarian's "eye." This allows for an up-close view of your pet's internal organs–a view that might otherwise require invasive surgery. 

Endoscopic procedures are particularly useful in diagnosing and treating conditions in your pet's mouth, esophagus, stomach, colon and upper intestinal tract. Endoscopy can be used for biopsies, specimen collection and colonoscopies. Many times, an endoscope is used to guide the removal of a foreign object from the stomach or intestine. Pets often ingest things they shouldn't, and with endoscopy, we have been able to remove quarters, nickels, needles, hair bands, twist ties and even Brillo pads from the stomach or intestinal tract of our patients!

Endoscopic procedures are far less invasive than routine surgeries; this means your pet experiences less pain and discomfort. Although anesthesia is required, endoscopic procedures are generally much shorter than surgical procedures, meaning shorter anesthesia time. After an endoscopic procedure, your pet may be able to go home the same day.

Diagnostic Laboratory Testing

When your pet is sick, he or she can't tell you what is wrong. Main Street Veterinary Hospital's extensive laboratory provides fast and accurate information critical for diagnosis of a sick or injured pet. With our modern diagnostic laboratory equipment, our patients can receive appropriate treatment immediately upon arriving at the hospital.

Our laboratory is capable of processing many different tests, including complete blood counts (CBC); blood chemistry panels; parasite testing to detect the presence of heartworms, roundworms and other internal parasites; bacterial and fungal cultures, and viral screens. We are also able to perform pre-anesthetic blood testing the day of your pet's anesthetic procedure. The information we obtain from these pre-anesthetic screening tests can greatly reduce the risks associated with anesthesia and surgery.
