Our Murfreesboro vets use diagnostic tests and tools in our in-house vet lab to accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions and customize treatment plans to your pet's needs.
Veterinary Laboratory & Diagnostics
Diagnostic imaging uses electromagnetic radiation and other technologies to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
At Brogli Lane Weaver & Alexander Animal Hospital, we have advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical conditions. We offer a range of services, from digital radiology to surgical lasers.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can provide more immediate treatment options and efficiently share information with your primary care veterinarian.
In-House Vet Lab & Pharmacy
In our in-house vet lab, we can perform tests and get results quickly so your pet's symptoms can be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Our pharmacy is stocked with a wide selection of prescription diets and medications. This allows for quick access to any medications your pet may need while in our care.
Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house veterinary diagnostic laboratory, we offer advanced diagnostic tools to help our vets provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
A radiograph (digital x-ray) can be used to examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, non-invasive, and painless. Because it uses only very low doses of radiation and radiation exposure is very low, even very young pets and pregnant females can have this procedure.
We use radiographs to evaluate bones and organs, and to diagnose conditions including bladder stones, chronic arthritis, fractured bones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the 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.
- Surgical & Cold Lasers
With surgical lasers, we can perform minimally invasive surgeries for increased precision when making incisions. Surgical lasers offer many benefits, including reduced pain and swelling, and little no hemorrhaging.
With cold laser therapy, we can treat pain and inflammation in dogs and cats. This non-surgical therapy can be used in combination with other treatments. It speeds the healing process, enhances curculation and has no negative side effects.
- Digital Dental Radiology
Digital dental x-rays capture high-quality images of your pet's teeth and oral cavity. These images are then immediately available on a computer system.
With digital x-ray machines, we're able to get better resolution and contrast in our x-rays. The software also provides further diagnostic value as veterinarians can manipulate the images as needed. This technology also significantly reduces exposure to radiation, making it safer for your pet.
With digital dental x-rays, we're able to provide more accurate diagnoses and the most effective treatment for any oral conditions.
- ECG / EKG
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is often used to examine the heart. The vet will look for abnormalities in the electrical impulses produced by your pet's heartbeat. Abnormalities may include issues such as structure or size abnormalities, irregular heartbeats, abnormal conduction, and other heart defects.
