Testing & Diagnostics

To keep your animals happy and healthy, it is imperative that you follow through with any testing or diagnostics that your veterinarian has suggested. At Northwood Veterinary Hospital, serving Northwood, NH, we make it easy to get these types of testing done quickly. Our team has the knowledge and technology to provide your pets the quality service they need. 


Annual Testing

During your pets' regular checkups, there are a series of tests or screenings that are recommended. These tests will be based on your pet's species and breed. These types of tests are essential for long-term health. These screenings check for problems that could be present without symptoms. These tests allow the vet to start early intervention treatments which increases your animals' chances of getting better quickly. 

Here are some examples of annual testing our vets may recommend having done at a lab.

  • Pet bloodwork 
  • Urinary analysis
  • Fecal analysis
  • Thyroid hormone testing
  • And other lab tests

Pet Diagnostics

Diagnostic testing is usually only performed if your vet suspects something is wrong with your pet. Diagnostics are also done after an injury. Diagnostics can include things like x-ray and ultrasounds. This is the best way for the doctor to check for problems that may not be obvious with just a regular exam. 

If your pet was injured or if your pet is showing signs of pain or distress, having diagnostics performed quickly could have a huge effect on its health and healing. 

When to Call the Vet

Not everything can be screened for during an annual check-up. Therefore, the pet owner needs to always keep watch for new symptoms. Your pet can't tell you when something is wrong. You can watch out for changes in appetite, behavior, distress noises, sensitivity to touch, lack of mobility, or irritability. Any of these could be a sign that something is wrong with your pet. You should call our vet to have them evaluated. 

If our vet recommends certain tests or screening, you should have those done as soon as possible. This is a good way to protect your pet's health.
