When you take your pet to the veterinarian, it's hard to wait for results to come back on simple blood draws, Lyme disease tests, or parasite screens. More often than not, the expectations of pet owners will be for answers to come quickly instead of waiting hours or even days for those results to be available.
Diagnostic testing has certainly evolved in the veterinary field in recent years, with in-house diagnostics and cutting-edge technology available for immediate use. It's no different here at Park View Veterinary Hospital in Boonton, where our staff can make immediate observations and plan treatment for pets based on the results of these tests.
We are proud to offer point-of-care diagnostic testing, from X-rays and ultrasound to analysis for stem-cell therapy treatments.
More on our In-House Diagnostics
There are a number of choices when it comes to diagnostic testing at our facility. All told, these services are often utilized to confirm the findings of more routine tests or to add information to a possible diagnosis.
Our doctors can order blood chemistry or CBC (complete blood count) and have it tested in our in-house lab. They can screen for heartworm or other serious issues and get answers faster than if the tests had to be sent away from our facility.
If your pet needs more extensive testing, we offer X-rays and ultrasound that would help determine if we might need to perform pet surgery the same day. All told, these diagnostic possibilities improve the level of care, make our diagnosis definite and help you to avoid having to wait for results at times when urgent care can be life-saving and prevent your pet from being in pain or otherwise suffering. The machines and technology at our fingertips simply give us confidence that we can greatly improve the standard of care.
Stem Cell Therapy
Our facility uses MediVet technology to extract stem cells from your pet. Why? Stem cells are powerful healing cells for your pet's body. For the treatment of arthritis, stem cells can become new cartilage cells. They also have natural anti-inflammatory properties.
Stem cell therapy has not only been proven to reduce pain and increase mobility in pets, it requires just a short time under anesthesia (typically less than 30 minutes), where the veterinarian will make a small incision, isolate stem cells from fat tissue, activate them, and reintroduce them directly into damaged areas of your pet's body. All of this takes just one visit, with fairly quick recovery time.
