Fast, accurate, and convenient in-house diagnostic services that you can trust!

When you are worried about your pet and are troubled by their strange symptoms, we at San Marco Animal Hospital understand that you want answers and solutions – fast. For this reason, our veterinarians and staff in Jacksonville, Florida, have invested in the equipment and training to offer in-house diagnostics. Our onsite diagnostic services do not add to the stress you are under with a pet who seems “off” or has alarming behavioral or physical changes. 

Pet Diagnostics Services in Jacksonville Area

They support the most convenient, comfortable, hassle-free, and affordable experience for you, our valued client, as well as our priority: our patients (your beloved dog or cat!). Notably, our onsite lab supports the accurate and prompt evaluation of your pet. Effective treatment plans and resolution of symptoms – and the root causes of these symptoms – depend on what we find during testing and from our array of technologies and onsite capabilities. So, we cannot overstate the importance of investments in the tools to accurately define the true nature of your pup’s or cat’s symptoms. The specific tests that may be ordered at a given time depend on several factors, including what we find during an initial exam, how your pet is “presenting,” age, and medical history or known conditions or potential comorbidities. 

We’ve highlighted just a few of the capabilities available courtesy of our skilled team:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) or bloodwork
  • Blood Chemistry Profile 
  • Urinalysis 
  • Imaging (radiography or x-rays, CT scans)
  • Ultrasound 
  • Punch biopsy 
  • Bone marrow aspirate
  • Fecal or stool tests for parasitic disease
  • Skin scraping, evaluation for ticks and other parasites
  • Heartworm testing
  • Electrocardiogram (ECGs or EKGs for suspected heart-related abnormalities)

These and other diagnostic services may be used to determine the cause of clinical signs and recommend treatments to resolve those conditions effectively and quickly. For instance, CBCs may reveal the presence of bacterial, viral, or fungal infections or endocrine and bone marrow diseases. Likewise, urinalysis can be used to rule out or confirm a diagnosis of various conditions, including UTIs and kidney disease. You have peace of mind at every life stage that your pet’s care is in excellent hands. 

Call San Marco Animal Hospital at 904-516-9767 to schedule your furry family member’s appointment. Be sure to ask us about our wellness plans, which cover many baseline and advanced diagnostic services for an affordable and predictable membership fee.

I took my cat to San Marco Animal Hospital and would highly recommend them. Dr. Gutta spent quite a bit of time talking to me about my cat’s health and preventative care. The staff was friendly and even called to check on my cat after his vaccines. Excellent service, and caring providers!
