Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
We use electromagnetic radiation as well as other diagnostic technologies like EKG and ultrasound for our imaging procedures. This allows us to create highly detailed images of your pet's internal systems and structures.
At Hyde Park Veterinary Clinic, we have advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services including digital radiography.
Using our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we are able to efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition and provide them with rapid treatment.

Our Diagnostic Services
Using our in-house veterinary diagnostic laboratory, we are pleased to be able to offer advanced diagnostic tests that allow our veterinarians to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues. We work with Antech Lab to provide additional laboratory and diagnostic testing.
Using a radiograph (x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a safe, painless and non-invasive procedure. Since it only uses very low doses of radiation to produce its images, even pregnant female pets and very young pets are able to undergo the procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
- In-House Bloodwork
At our in-house vet lab in Cincinnati, we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests in order to determine your pet's health and diagnose their issues.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
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.
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 can be a quite valuable tests for both sick and healthy pets and is ideally included in any comprehensive assessment of your pet's overall health and well-being.
- Fecal Exams
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Cincinnati.
The goal of a fecal exam is the identification and eventual treatment of any gastrointestinal infections which may be compromising your pet's health or the health of your whole household., Fecals allow our vets to determine fi your pet has intestinal parasites too, like hookworms or roundworms.
Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even 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.
Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (EKG).
This procedure is able to be completed quickly and easily, revealing data that may be key to the diagnosis of your pet's condition. In other instances, a procedure lika cardiac ultrasound may be required to visually monitor the chambers of your companion's heart.
- Blood Pressure
We have blood pressure monitoring equipment that we use during surgery so our staff can monitor how your pet is doing during surgery. For pets who have medical indications or risk factors our Cincinnati vets may also recommend blood pressure checks for your pet.
- Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Dental X-Rays are safe for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
