Diagnostic & Lab Technology, Cumming Vet

Our Veterinary Diagnostic Services 

Using our in-house vet diagnostics laboratory, our veterinary team is proud to offer advanced diagnostic testing to allow us to provide a rapid diagnosis of your pet's medical concerns.

  • Radiography (Digital X-rays)

    Using digital x-rays, otherwise known as radiographs, we examine your pet's internal systems. By doing so, we are able to discover information that might otherwise have been hidden.

    Digital x-rays are safe, painless and aren't invasive. They also only use very low doses of radiation, meaning that they are generally safe for pregnant very young or pregnant pets. 

    They can be used to evaluate organs and bones and can diagnose a range of conditions such as chronic arthritis, broken bones, spinal cord issues bladder stones.

  • Ultrasound

    The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.

    With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.

    Because we capture ultrasound images in real time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.

    Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner.

  • Endoscopy

    An endoscope is made up of a very tiny camera and light affixed to the end of a flexible tube that can be inserted directly into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail.

    This endoscopy equipment helps us to diagnose and remove stones, place feeding tubes and more. 

  • Bloodwork

    At our vet lab in Cumming we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet and to diagnose illness.

    Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile. 

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

    This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health. 

  • Fecal Exam

    A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house veterinary laboratory in Cumming.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms. 

    Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions with the ability to be transmitted to humans.

    Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam which makes annual fecal exams an important part of your pet's routine care.

  • Cold Laser Therapy

    Cold laser therapy uses low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help relieve pain, stimulate and enhance cell function, increase blood flow and improve healing.

    Several conditions have been shown to improve with the use of cold laser therapy including muscle and joint pain, arthritis symptoms, and muscle spasms.

  • Digital Dental X-Rays

    If your cat or dog is suffering from periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen.

    Digital X-rays allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine the roots, bones and internal anatomy of your pet's teeth.

    Using digital X-rays, the risk of radiation exposure is vastly lower than with traditional X-ray technology. This technology also allows our vets to be able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth and assess your pet's overall oral health.

    This technology allows your vet in Cumming to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
