Veterinary Diagnostics in Rancho Cordova, CA

Your pet’s wellness is our number one focus. If you know your pet is not feeling well, our diagnostics can help figure out what is going on. At Gold Canal Veterinary Urgent Care, we want to get to the bottom of your pet’s discomfort and unwellness as quickly as possible.

In-House Lab

Our state-of-the-art lab streamlines the process of understanding what your pet cannot communicate. With a prompt turnaround and same-day results, we find the core cause of your pet’s discomfort so they don’t have to struggle alone.

Our in-house lab utilizes a suite of tests, such as:

  • Blood chemistries
  • Urinalysis
  • CBC (or Complete Blood Count, a standard test)
  • Drug testing
  • Blood gasses

It also does snap tests for:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Heartworm and tick-borne disease
  • Parvo
  • Cardiac disease

On top of these tests, we can also make ultrasound and X-rays, with board-certified radiologists trained to check digital X-rays for possible breaks or tumors.

Sometimes the issue can’t be found with a blood test or an X-ray, and different tests must be utilized. If our research requires further diagnostics, we can send out labs for more advanced testing. We want your pet on the road to recovery, whether that’s in-house or elsewhere.

As always, all results we find will be sent to your primary veterinarian so everyone stays informed.
