Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
Our veterinarians in Bedford use diagnostic tests and tools in our in-house lab to accurately diagnose your pet's medical condition and develop custom treatment plans.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
Electromagnetic radiation and other technologies are used in diagnostic imaging to help us produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures.

Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house laboratory, we are proud to offer advanced diagnostics that allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
With a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can look at your pet's internal systems to find information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is painless, safe and non-invasive. It uses minimal doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can have this procedure.
Radiographs may be used to evaluate organs and bones, and diagnose conditions including bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, chronic arthritis, broken bones and some tumors.
Using ultrasound imaging, we expose a specific part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, we can see the movement and structure of your pet's internal organs, in addition to blood flowing through the blood vessels.
If your veterinarian suspects your pet may have a heart disorder after performing a physical examination, we typically take chest x-rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG).
This procedure can be done quickly and easily. It reveals valuable information that may be enough to help your vet provide a diagnosis. In other cases, we may need to do a cardiac ultrasound to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
