Pet Diagnostics in Omaha

Here at Florence Animal Hospital, we provide our clients with the best medical care for their pets and have some of the latest technology for veterinary diagnostics. To find the cause of your pet’s illness, diagnosis testing is often required.

We understand how anxious pet owners can become when waiting for the results behind their beloved pets’ problems. We can offer faster and more accurate results. We have on-site digital radiology, as well as other ultrasound services and an in-house medical laboratory that can help you get the results you need without further delay.

Offering these services on-site leads to a much faster diagnosis, so your pet can be given the proper treatment. We want the pets we treat, and their owners to be happy and know they are in hands they can trust. Our vets will discuss all treatment options that are available for your pet, as well as any fees involved.

Veterinary Radiology

Radiographs, or x-rays, offer an extremely useful diagnostic tool for our vets to give the correct treatment to an animal. Radiographs have the ability to show the pet’s bones and organs by penetrating the tissue using electromagnetic radiation. X-rays can be used to show fractured bones, heart problems, objects that have been swallowed, masses, and many other useful things.

In-House Laboratory
Our on-site lab means we can perform tests on blood, urine, and fecal samples ourselves. The results we receive from these tests are useful in many cases, but especially in critical and emergency cases. Blood tests are helpful for assessing your pet’s health and also detecting any diseases or other conditions. We can gain useful information about your pet’s blood cells, liver, kidney, and thyroid function in a matter of minutes.
When your pet’s urine is tested in our laboratory, it can help us to detect any abnormal presence in the urine – such as sugar, protein, blood, bacteria, crystals, or white blood cells. The concentration or dilution of your pet’s urine can also help us to determine an illness. Diabetes, kidney problems, urinary tract infection, dehydration, and other medical conditions can all be diagnosed through urinalysis.
Veterinary Ultrasound
An ultrasound is a safe, painless, and non-invasive procedure used to evaluate the internal organs. Ultrasound provides us with a real-time moving image that allows us to see things that an X-ray cannot and from a different perspective.

It helps us to determine the size, shape, internal structure, tissue density, and more of your pet’s organs. It can also be used to diagnose pregnancy and identify tumors or masses.

The procedure often does not require sedation and can take around twenty minutes. We are often able to get a diagnosis immediately from the ultrasound, which means treatment options can be discussed on the same day.
