Why is Bloodwork So Important

With bloodwork, we can learn more about what’s going on inside your pet, and discover any underlying concerns that are not apparent with just a physical exam. Early disease detection is much easier with bloodwork. At Banks Veterinary Clinic of Beaumont, we utilize in-house laboratory testing equipment to run various blood, urine, and fecal tests, and we also work with external laboratories to provide comprehensive blood tests.

Our in-house lab is highly beneficial to pets with urgent health problems, but for routine, comprehensive screens, we can send out samples for external review.

Some of the tests we recommend for our patients on a regular basis:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Blood chemistry
  • Heartworm test
  • Tick-borne disease testing
  • Fecal exam
  • Urinalysis

Digital Radiography

If we need to go further to understand your pet’s condition and what might be causing problems for them, we can use our digital radiography equipment. Compared with traditional film X-ray, our digital X-ray machine uses less radiation, provides clearer images, and shortens the amount of time your dog or cat has to spend getting X-rayed.

With this tool, we can investigate heart and lung issues, and check for broken bones, joint deformities, and arthritis.

Ultrasound Imaging

Banks Veterinary Clinic of Beaumont is able to provide in-house ultrasounds with the help of a board-certified cardiologist and two internal medicine specialists, both double-boarded in cardiology. We can use our ultrasound equipment to check for issues involving the kidneys, liver, gastrointestinal system, and other organs, and investigating heart murmurs, abdominal masses, and more. We can also perform preventative ultrasounds.
