Diagnostic Services

Ultrasound

Harborside Veterinary Hospital Diagnostic Ultrasound

Harborside Veterinary Hospital recently added a state-of-the-art GE LOGIQ P6 digital ultrasound unit to its array of diagnostic equipment. Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia and is less stressful and more comfortable for your pet. It uses soundwaves to provide a real-time moving picture of your pet's internal organs. Used primarily for examining the abdomen and heart, ultrasound allow us to look inside your pet and examine the function of internal organs. Ultrasound is useful in examining the heart, providing an image of the heart as it is beating and supplying a detailed view of the valves, strength of the heart muscle and more. Harborside Veterinary Hospital utilizes the services of a specialist when performing some cardiac ultrasounds. Because Dr. James Frevola attends continuing education courses in ultrasound twice a year, your pet has access to the latest advances in veterinary ultrasound.

Diagnostic Laboratory

Routine blood testing helps our veterinarians aquire information about your pet's health that might not be seen during routine physical examinations. We are equipped with sophisticated instruments that allow us to measure many laboratory values. As a compliment to our regular laboratory services, our in-house diagnostic capabilities allow us to obtain results pre-surgically, or in an emergency, within minutes.

Digital Radiology

Harborside Veterinary Hospital Digital Radiology

Radiology is one of the most useful diagnostic tools when it comes to treating your pet. X-rays allow us to see the size, shape and location of organs and foreign bodies inside your pet's body. Harborside Veterinary Hospital utilizes digital x-ray technology, which produces faster, more accurate x-rays than traditional film and plate radiographs. As a result, digital x-rays reduce your pet's exposure to radiation and produce a clear, high-resolution image that provides a fast, accurate diagnosis.

PennHIP Evaluations

Millions of dogs each year are afflicted with canine hip dysplasia, which results in severe osteoarthritis of the hip. Many large-breed dogs demonstrate x-ray evidence of hip dysplasia at a very early age. PennHIP is a not-for-profit program operated by the University of Pennsylvania that works with veterinarians across the country to better evaluate and treat canine hip dysplasia. PennHIP utilizes a multifaceted x-ray technology for hip evaluation, assessing the quality of the hip and measuring the hip joint laxity. PennHIP is extremely accurate in its ability to predict the onset of osteoarthritis.
