Diagnostics


digital radiologyDigital Radiology

Planco Veterinary Care has Digital Radiography which provides crystal clear digital images that allow for earlier diagnoses. Digital technology is much faster than conventional radiography, and the software allows adjustment of brightness, contrast, zoom and pan on a single exposure. As long as the patient is positioned correctly, most everything else can be fixed by the machine’s controls.

Images can be burned to discs or e-mailed to specialists and radiologists if needed. Adding this state of the art technology is another way we are providing the best quality medicine for your pets.

Our Laboratory

Blood machine

Performing preventative medicine as well as diagnosing internal health issues requires the ability to perform a wide range of laboratory tests on blood. In approximately 15 minutes, we can know if there are problems in any of the major organ systems. This is particularly important in emergency situations where the doctors need information quickly.

At Planco Veterinary Care we have a complete in-house laboratory capable of performing urinalysis,  blood chemistries, hematology, and thyroid panel. Although we have the ability to run blood samples in our clinic, in addition, we partner with an area veterinary specialty lab in order to extend our diagnostic capabilities.
