Diagnostics

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal companions can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, Taylorsville Veterinary Clinic relies on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your best friend even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Taylorsville Veterinary Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

      We have been using Taylorsville Vet Clinic for over 13 years and they are the best! They took care of our first Golden Retriever for 11 years. They always gave us sound, professional advise and guidance as we maneuvered through, Lymes disease, Hypothyrodism, Arthritis and finally, with great sensitivity, cancer and the final decision to have our girl put to sleep. We now have a new Golden and they have already had to deal with a life-threatening situation with her! Once again, Dr. Sutton has clearly explained our options and helped us make the best decision for our dog. I appreciate that they treat me with respect as a pet owner by giving me all the options available, from conservative to more preemptive/proactive approach- never judging my final decision. As long as I have a pet, I will be taking them to Taylorsville Vet Clinic and I will recommend them to anyone with confidence.

      I started taking my dog here in 2017 and they have always been amazing.... we had two emergency situations and we're seen right away , the girls are so good with my bolder who has epilepsy, is always nervous and is a dashchund need I say more lol.... Dr. Lucas is great with him and started treatment which reduced his seizures to almost none and they always try to be fair in pricing since bolders care requires bloodwork and meds for life. thank you very much for all you do for our bolder boo
