Our Medical Care and Diagnostics

Digital Radiography

At South Park Animal Hospital we have an in-house digital radiography system which provide clear, detailed radiographs for diagnostic purposes. We can easily e-mail these images to a veterinary radiologist for consultation(s) as needed in order to provide the best possible care for your pet.

Hematology

With our hematology unit we can use a smaller volume of blood from your pet to run an accurate Complete Blood Count (CBC) in less than two minutes!

Serum Chemistry

With our serum chemistry units we can perform quick and versatile tests to monitor and assess organ function, electrolytes status, diabetic monitoring, thyroid monitoring, and more. Results can be received in as little as seven minutes.
