Diagnostics in Magnolia
Fast Diagnostics, Fast Treatment
When your pet is feeling sick, they can’t tell us what’s wrong. At Shady Brook Animal Hospital, we use state of the art diagnostic technology to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, no translator required. Our Magnolia veterinary team will use all of the tools at their disposal to diagnose your pet quickly and get them the treatment they need fast.
We also use our diagnostic technology for baseline testing of your pet’s health when they come in for regular wellness exams. By testing your pet regularly, we’re able to get a clear picture of your pet’s normal standard of health, which allows us to more easily pinpoint deviations in your pet’s tests when they’re not feeling their best.

Diagnostics at Shady Brook Animal Hospital
As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited hospital, Shady Brook Animal Holiday is pleased to over a broad suite of diagnostic testing services for all of your pet’s health needs. Our highly trained and compassionate veterinary team will examine your pet and ask you questions about their health and behavior before recommending any of our diagnostic testing.
Shady Brook Animal Hospital offers the following diagnostic services:
- Laboratory testing
We’ll use any of the above tests to get a closer look at your pet’s overall health. These are largely non-invasive tests, which means you don’t have to worry about the comfort and safety of your pet while we conduct these tests.
Electrocardiograms, or ECGs, record the electrical signals of your pet’s heart. We’ll use ECGs when we need to monitor your pet’s vitals or if we suspect that your pet’s heart is functioning irregularly. Like X-rays and ultrasounds, ECGs are pain-free and non-invasive.
Radiology & Ultrasound
Both radiology and ultrasound imaging gives us a literal picture of your pet’s insides. We use X-ray imaging to look at the hard, dense tissues inside of your pet, such as bones and muscles. Ultrasounds are best for looking at the soft tissues inside your pet, like organs. Both of these types of imaging enable us to see beyond your pet’s fur, feathers, or scales. This is particularly useful if we suspect your pet has a broken bone or if we need to further explore an unusual growth.
X-ray images are still pictures, which we produce digitally so that you get the results of the exam quickly. We read the images in house and also send them out to a board-certified radiologist to confirm our analysis.
Ultrasound images move in real time, allowing us to watch what’s happening throughout your pet’s organs and systems. We also can monitor pregnancies with ultrasounds, as it uses sound-waves and not radiation to capture images.
