Advanced Diagnostics

Whether you and your pet visit us for routine preventive care or for a sudden illness, our state-of-the-art, in-house diagnostic equipment can address any concerns you might have about your pet’s health.

Our in-house equipment and capabilities include:

  • Blood analyzer that can provide blood panel results in 20 minutes
  • Fecal and urine analysis
  • Ultrasound-guided cystocentesis for collecting uncontaminated urine samples
  • Fine needle aspiration to biopsy unusual lumps or bumps on your pet’s body
  • Ear and skin cytology to identify sources of infections on the skin
  • Digital dental and whole body x-ray units
  • Multi-probe ultrasound unit for high quality images

Having these diagnostic tools in-house means you get results in minutes instead of days, which is especially important when your pet is sick. We can diagnose the underlying problem quickly and provide a treatment plan the same day.

Please visit our Internal Medicine page to know which symptoms to look for in your pet.

Dr. Murphy and his staff are amazing! Our bulldog had been living with chronic ear problems that were never really treated at our previous vet. Just one visit at Westside and she had instant relief! The day after her visit, Dr. Murphy called to check on her! …Beautiful facility too!
