Diagnostic & Therapeutic

Melrose Animal Clinic’s screening, diagnostic and therapeutic services are second-to-none. Our on-site laboratory and radiology capabilities allow us to screen symptom-free pets for common conditions and diagnose pets that are experiencing illness or injury quickly and accurately. The sooner we identify a health issue, the sooner we can develop a customized treatment plan for your pet. Melrose Animal Clinic’s diagnostic services include:

  • On-site veterinary laboratory services that generate test results within 20 minutes, when needed. Tests commonly processed in our laboratory include skin scrapings, complete blood counts, blood chemistry profiles, urinalysis and needle biopsies. Non-urgent testing and less-common tests may be processed by an outside lab, with results available within 24 hours.
  • Digital radiology and ultrasound to evaluate bones, muscles, joints and internal organs and structures. Digital radiology is computerized, which provides a high level of detail and allows us to share the images and discuss your pet’s condition with you immediately. We can also easily send the images to a veterinary specialist if your pet requires specialty care.

The veterinarians at Melrose Animal Clinic are experienced in and knowledgeable about the full spectrum of injuries and illnesses. The conditions we treat include skin and ear disorders; food allergies; infections; hormonal disorders such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and Cushing’s disease; heart, lung, liver and blood diseases; tumors; broken bones; muscle and joint conditions; fleas, ticks, mites and other parasites; obesity; and more. We are as committed to your pet’s health and well-being as you are, and will work closely and consult with local board-certified specialists when your pet requires additional expertise.
