Diagnostics

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal family members can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many pets are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, we rely on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion. Paw Prints Animal Hospital offers both routine testing as well as advanced diagnostic services.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your loved one even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why Paw Prints Animal Hospital also offers Digital Radiography. This tool allows us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use Digital Radiography to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your furry friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your little buddy back on the path to good health again.

      We love Paw Prints! From the receptionist, vet techs and all the Vets...they are all so caring!! We appreciate all they have done for us over the years with our pets with the most recent being our outdoor cat, Houdini!! He went missing for 2 weeks back in April and came home with a terrible bite/infection to his back foot. Their quick response and dedication at the end of the day saved his foot. He is on his way to recovery and we are blessed for their knowledge and care for all animals!! THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

      My husband and I took our first puppy (Pumpkin) to Dr. Cousins at Paw Prints Animal Hospital back in 2006 for her first shots & checkup; and now Pumpkin is nearly 12 and still doing great! We love the Paw Prints Animal Hospital veterinarians, over the years we have seen and talked with them all! And even though we have now moved away from Easley to another city, we will still take our pets to Paw Prints 🐾 they are just that good!

      I had THE BEST experience! THEY CARE! Doberman Pinschers are a real different breed with some quirky issues occasionally. My experience started with reception with Ms. Molly who was very kind. The Vet Tech Diana was EXTREMELY seasoned with deep observational AND probing questions providing an AMAZING triage. Dr. Melissa Elledge actually cared about my dog and SPENT TIME with my sweet Zeb. PRICING WAS AMAZING! It was MUCH lower than an upset tummy visit from a chain vet office. MY DOBIE IS “THAT ONE” dog you get in a lifetime! HE WAS BLESSED WITH THE BEST AND PAW PRINTS DESERVES AND EARNS MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE!

      Dr. Baer was incredibly kind to myself and my baby boy Dozo on his first ever vet trip. He even called to check up on Dozo a couple days after his visit which really made me feel like we picked a good place for our pet to be treated at. Thanks so much paw prints!
