The Diagnostic Difference at Companion Animal Hospital

At Companion Animal Hospital in Traverse City, MI, we embark on the path to pet wellness with an unwavering commitment to thorough assessment. When your animal companion faces illness or injury, our journey begins with an extensive history review and a comprehensive physical examination. These initial steps grant us valuable insights, yet sometimes, deeper exploration is essential. This is where our expertise in diagnostics shines.

Our skilled veterinarians may recommend various diagnostic tests following our meticulous physical examination. These tests serve a dual purpose: confirming suspicions drawn from the examination and uncovering hidden complexities that might elude surface scrutiny.

Bloodwork Panels

  • In-House Expertise: We frequently employ in-house bloodwork to aid in diagnosing sick pets and detecting underlying conditions, even in outwardly healthy animals.
  • Anesthesia Safety: For patients undergoing anesthesia, we prioritize safety by conducting pre-anesthetic bloodwork, allowing us to adjust anesthesia, pain management, fluids, or even postpone procedures if needed.
  • Comprehensive Insights: Our blood panels reveal infections, anemia, diabetes, liver and kidney issues, hydration status, electrolyte imbalances, and clotting disorders, often detecting conditions before they manifest symptoms.
  • Early Intervention: Timely identification empowers us to proactively treat or manage these conditions, ensuring your pet’s lasting happiness and health.

Comprehensive Urinalysis

  • Senior Care: For our senior companions, urinalysis is invaluable, enabling us to monitor their well-being more comprehensively.
  • Kidney Function: We evaluate urine concentration to ensure proper kidney function, a critical aspect of overall health.
  • Extended Analysis: We may send urine samples to external labs for further analysis and culture.
