Could an underlying illness or injury be plaguing your pet?

When humans get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With companion pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our furry or feathered family members can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.

What’s more, many animals are able to conceal the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.

Veterinary diagnostics enable our team to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.


The on-site diagnostic laboratory at Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can establish a treatment plan before you and your pet even leave the exam room.


When a physical checkup and lab work aren’t sufficient for reaching a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, such as x-rays and ultrasound. These innovative tools allow us to analyze the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.

Diagnostic images can be evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your furry or feathered friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your companion back on the path to good health again.
