Veterinary Diagnostic Lab
We use electromagnetic radiations among other diagnostic technologies in our in-house lab in order to conduct diagnostic imaging. This allows us to create detailed images of your pet's internal systems and structures.
At Veterinary Wellness Clinic Of Columbia, we use our advanced diagnostic tools in order to identify and diagnose your pet's health issues. These tools range from ultrasound to digital radiology and ECG devices.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition and provide immediate treatment options.

Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing to allow our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
Diagnostic imaging technologies allow our veterinary team to create extremely detailed imaged of your pet's internal structures and systems.
With ultrasound imaging, we are able to expose a part of your pet's body to high-frequency sound waves in order to produce a real-time image of the inside of your pet's body.
Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner.
- ECG / EKG
If, after performing a physical examination of your pet, if your vet suspects they may have a heart disorder we will usually take both chest x-rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
