Peoria Veterinary Diagnostics

pet diagnostics, peoria


Radiographs, or X-rays, are one of the most common and useful diagnostic tools in medicine because of their ability to penetrate tissues and show your pet's organs and bones. At All Pets Animal Hospital, we use X-rays to examine your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas, as well as for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. If we suspect your pet has a fractured bone, has swallowed a foreign object or is suffering from a heart problem, an X-ray can tell us what we need to know.

The investment in high-quality X-ray technology reflects a commitment to offer you and your pet the best, most comprehensive healthcare available.


Ultrasound is a painless, safe, non-invasive procedure that we use to evaluate your pet's internal organs. It is one of the many ways we strive to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet's health. Using sound waves, ultrasound produces a real-time moving picture of your pet's organs that allows us to visualize objects that cannot be detected by X-rays alone.

At All Pets Animal Hospital, we use ultrasound to assess the shape, size, tissue density, internal structure and position of your pet's abdominal organs, assess cardiac health (also called an echocardiogram) and diagnose pregnancy. It can also be used to identify masses or tumors and as a guide during surgical biopsies.

In-House Veterinary Laboratory in Peoria

When performing routine wellness examinations or diagnosing an illness, what a veterinarian can't see is as important, if not more important, than what they can see. Because protecting your pet's health is the most important job, we have a reference laboratory and an in-house diagnostic laboratory that allows us to perform a wide range of tests on blood, urine, feces and biopsied tissue. Without timely access to these precise test results, it would be difficult to make an accurate diagnosis or assessment of your pet's health. Test results can also help us in the early detection of diseases and other conditions affecting your pet's health and well-being.

Quick Results for Your Pet's Tests

Diagnostic testing can detect heartworm disease, valley fever, infections, feline leukemia, intestinal parasites, urinary tract infections and many other diseases and conditions that can go unnoticed in their early stages. Blood testing can show early evidence of diabetes, changes in liver or kidney function, or simply provide a baseline for future reference. Diagnostic laboratory testing is also completed prior to dental or surgical procedures that require general anesthesia.

Laboratory testing provides information about your pet's overall systemic health without the need for invasive and expensive procedures. Thanks to the hospital's in-house diagnostic laboratory, when needed, we are able to deliver your pet's test results quickly, minimizing the time you need to wait for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
