X-ray. Scans. Bloods.
We offer a range of high-end diagnostic services here at Palmerstown Veterinary Hospital.
We perform most tests in our hospital. However when we can't, we have a close affiliation with a leading European veterinary laboratory that we typically receive next day results from.
Diagnostic Imaging / X-ray
An x-ray helps to assess bone and organ structure.
Diagnostic Imaging / Ultrasound
Ultrasound is an excellent, non-invasive diagnostic tool for assessing the internal structure and tissue type of many of the body’s organs. It can be used to detect inflammation, abscesses, stones and tumours. It is also valuable in monitoring heart health and function.
