Veterinary Diagnostic Lab
We use a variety of technologies for our diagnostic imaging, including electromagnetic radiation. These tests allow us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal systems and structures.
At Eagle Ridge Veterinary Hospital, we have tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound and ECG.
With our diagnostic testing and imaging capabilities, we are able to produce accurate diagnostic images of your pet's insides in order to gain information about your pet's health issues and provide rapid treatment options.

Our Diagnostic Services
Using our in-house veterinary diagnostic lab, we are proud to be able to offer our patients advanced diagnostic testing. This allows our vets to produce rapid diagnoses of your pet's health problems.
- 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 tumours.
The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
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.
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.
We use an ECG device to conduct electrocardiogram (ECG) tests. These tests measure the electrical activity of your pet's heart to track its physical activity.
Using this technology, we can detect previous heart attacks, heart disease and abnormal heart rhythms. Not only that, but our advanced equipment allows for a more comfortable experience for your pet.
