Fast Testing & Precise Diagnoses
Our Santa Clarita vets use our in-house lab's diagnostic tools and tests to accurately and quickly evaluate and diagnose your pet's medical condition and customize treatment plans for all of your pet's needs.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
We use electromagnetic radiation among other tech in our diagnostic imaging tests. This allows us to produce high quality images of your pet's internal structures to better identify their conditions.
At Valencia Veterinary Center, we have advanced tests and tools to help diagnose your pet's medical issues accurately and promptly. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound and cold lasers.
With our in-house diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can provide your pet with treatment options quickly and efficiently as well as share any important information with you about your beloved pet.
In-House Lab & Pharmacy
We perform tests and get results quickly in our in-house laboratory, so that we can diagnose your pet's symptoms and begin treatment as soon as possible. Our pharmacy is stocked with a range of prescription diets and medications, providing us quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services
Using our in-house lab, our clinic is proud to offer advanced diagnostic technology and tools to allow our veterinarians to give you an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using digital x-rays, otherwise known as radiographs, we examine your pet's internal systems. By doing so, we are able to discover information that might otherwise have been hidden.
Digital x-rays are safe, painless and aren't invasive. They also only use very low doses of radiation, meaning that they are generally safe for pregnant very young or pregnant pets.
They can be used to evaluate organs and bones and can diagnose a range of conditions such as chronic arthritis, broken bones, spinal cord issues bladder stones.
Using ultrasound imaging, we expose part of your pet's body to high-frequency sound waves in order to produce an image of the inside of their body.
Since we are able to capture your pet's internal workings in real time using this technology, we can see their inner workings' structures and movements as well as blood flow.
- Cold Lasers
Cold lasers create a focused light that stimulates the tissue at and below the surface of your pet’s skin promoting cellular energy and regeneration, resulting in tissue repair, better circulation and pain relief.
Cold laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of painful diseases, injuries and conditions in pets. These include musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries (sprains and strains) and osteoarthritis.
Cold laser therapy is often recommended in combination with other treatments.
- Surgical Lasers
Surgical lasers can offer a number of benefits over traditional scapel surgery, including little to no hemorrhaging, reduced swelling and pain at the incision site, and increased precision. Lasers may yield superior results compared to scalpels, particularly with certain procedures.
- Endoscopy machine
An endoscope is made up of a very tiny camera and light affixed to the end of a flexible tube that can be inserted directly into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail.
This our endoscopy equipment helps us to diagnose and remove stones, place feeding tubes and more.
