In house diagnostics with a Caring Detroit Veterinarian
If you’re looking for a veterinarian in Detroit, a veterinarian in Dearborn or any of the surrounding areas, it’s likely that West Warren Veterinary Hospital can handle any of your pet’s needs. We are a full-service veterinary office that has experience in dealing with a wide variety of pet-related illnesses and injuries as well with routine pet care. Our staff is not only highly knowledgeable and skilled at what we do, we all dearly love animals and have a sincere desire to help you care for your pets and keep them healthy, active and thriving for as long as possible. We treat our pet patients in the same way that we treat their loving families -- with respect, concern and the recognition that they are unique, individual beings with their own distinct needs, likes and dislikes.
If you are in search of answers about your pet’s health or behavior, we offer a range of diagnostic services that can help to identify your pet’s specific treatment needs. Our services include:
Our veterinarian can use x-rays to determine whether surface injuries are a more serious issue than meets the eye. X-rays are only ordered if the vet deems them necessary, and they are fairly routine for such things as dental care and examining bones fractures or damaged joints. Such injuries may be difficult to detect by simply feeling around the surface area of a bruise or tender spot. X-rays can be done rather quickly and are a very useful diagnostic tool that allows the vet to be much more accurate in providing care and administering the proper treatment.
Electrocardiography is the process used to perform an electrocardiogram, also known as an EKG. Electrocardiograms can help to detect any abnormal rhythms in the heart. Abnormalities can be an indication of illness or a byproduct of a chronic condition such as bronchitis. EKG’s are often used to monitor the condition of the heart if a pet is coughing repeatedly or experiencing heart murmurs. An EKG may also be done as part of a full physical checkup or if your pet is being put under general anesthesia for a surgical procedure.
Parasite Testing & Urinalysis
A urinalysis and parasite testing should be a part of every routine physical exam that your pet has. A urinalysis checks kidney health, fluid levels, metabolic levels and may also indicate the presence of any underlying diseases. Parasite testing involves having the vet take a fecal sample from your pet to ensure that there is no occurrence of intestinal parasites such as roundworms, heartworms, giardia, hookworms and coccidia.
