At Westmonte Animal Clinic, your animal’s health is important to us. We not only care for your pets as if they were our own, we also believe in treating them as well as we treat ourselves. Just as we humans have to undergo routine exams and blood work, dogs and cats do too.
Without regular testing, we wouldn’t be able to understand your companion animal’s health fully or detect underlying problems (which could get worse without treatment).
At Westmonte Animal Clinic, we are proud to offer a wide range of diagnostic technology to assess and monitor your pet’s condition. Our in-house laboratory allows us to provide point of care diagnostics in record time.

Veterinary Diagnostic Tests
Veterinary diagnostics can alert us to all kinds of health problems, including heartworm disease, intestinal worms and other parasites, high or low blood sugar, infections, zoonotic diseases, and more.
In many animals, these diseases are able to be detected (and treated!) long before your pet begins to show symptoms. Therefore, routine testing is key.
Many veterinarians rely on outside diagnostic laboratories to perform these necessary tests. But with our sophisticated on-site lab equipment, we can provide quick, accurate results for a wide range of conditions.
Some of the tests we provide in-house include:
- Fecal exams
- Heartworm disease testing
- Tick-borne disease testing
- Blood cell counts
- Skin cytology/skin scrapings
- And more!
We can also perform tests to evaluate organ function and screen for specific conditions.
When we are unable to perform a test in the clinic, we use Antech for comprehensive, detailed results.
On-Site Digital X-Ray
At Westmonte Animal Clinic, digital X-ray equipment helps us keep a close eye on your animal’s health by providing highly detailed images in minutes.
Unlike traditional film X-ray, digital X-rays are faster, produce higher-quality images, and can be easily shared with specialists if needed.
Many people assume that X-rays are only used to view bones and joints, but we also use it to view organs, allowing us to diagnose conditions such as arthritis, joint dysplasia, abnormalities of the heart and lungs, tumors, and more.
We typically recommend X-ray when your animal is experiencing chronic coughing, difficulty breathing, limping, swelling of one of the limbs, or neck/back pain.
