Fast Testing & Precise Diagnoses
In our in-house lab, our Kent vets use diagnostic tests and tools to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and customize treatment plans to your pet's needs.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
Electromagnetic radiation and other technologies are used for diagnostic imaging. This allows us to produce extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
At Afford-A-Vet Animal Clinic, we leverage advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions. Our services include digital radiology, ultrasound and cold lasers.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we're able to provide more immediate treatment options and efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition.
In-House Lab & Pharmacy
With our in-house laboratory, we're able to perform tests and get quick results so that we can diagnose your pet's symptoms and start treating them as soon as possible. You'll also find a range of prescription medications and diets in our pharmacy, which allows for quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services in Kent
Our veterinarians are able to use advanced diagnostics in our in-house lab to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
With a digital x-ray, or radiograph, we can examine your pet's internal systems to see what's happening that may not be visible from the outside.
Radiography is a painless, non-invasive and safe diagnostic method that uses only very low doses of radiation. Because this required level of radiation exposure is very low, even very young pets and pregnant females can have this procedure.
Radiographs may be used to assess bones and organs, and to diagnose conditions including bladder stones, chronic arthritis, spinal cord diseases, broken bones and some tumors.
During ultrasound imaging, a specific part of the body is exposed to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of your pet's body.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, the movement and structure of your pet's internal organs can be viewed, in addition to blood flowing through the blood vessels.
