Veterinary Diagnostics in Bedford

In-house Diagnostics for Faster Treatment

Because pets can’t tell us what hurts when they’re not feeling well, it’s often difficult to diagnose their health conditions. At Brown Trail Animal Hospital, our Bedford veterinarians use the latest diagnostic technology to help understand your pet’s health, both when they’re feeling under the weather and as a part of their regular preventative care services. Our in-house diagnostic capabilities enable us to get results faster than if we had to send your pet to an outside laboratory, which means we’re able to get your pet the treatment they need quicker.

Call (817) 765-5331 or contact us online to schedule your pet’s appointment.

Diagnostic Testing at Brown Trail Animal Hospital

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited animal hospital, Brown Trail Animal Hospital is proud to offer the latest diagnostic technology at our clinic.

We are able to perform diagnostic testing such as:

  • Blood work
  • Urinalysis
  • Radiology
  • Dental radiographs

All of the above tests tell us something different about your pet’s health. With these tests, we’re able to gather a wealth of information that will help us better understand their needs. Brown Trail Animal Hospital is able to perform a variety of other diagnostic tests as well, depending on your concerns.

In-House Laboratory

Brown Trail Animal Hospital’s complete in-house laboratory enables us to run many diagnostic tests on your pet’s blood, urine, and feces. At other animal hospitals where they need to send your pet’s samples externally for testing, you may be waiting for a long time for results. With our in-house laboratory, your pet will receive their test results much faster, which means we’ll be able to get them the treatment solutions they need faster than animal hospitals that do not have the same capabilities.


Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer radiology services as a means of providing excellent care to our patients.

A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones.

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. The size and shape of organs is important because some medical conditions—such as kidney, heart, or liver disease—can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Tumors, depending on their size and location, can also sometimes be detected using radiography. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions. Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet.

X-rays are recommended for the imaging of your pet’s bones and other dense tissues, while ultrasounds are best for internal organs and other soft tissues. Depending on what we’re looking at, we’ll recommend either x-rays and/or ultrasound imaging to get a better view. If an ultrasound is needed, we partner with a local traveling internist to provide that imaging here in our hospital, so in most cases you won’t have to be referred to another facility for this important diagnostic.

Radiological imaging can also be very helpful when your pet needs dental care! We can use our in-house radiology services to take images of your pet’s teeth and jaw. We’ll use these radiographs to help guide our Bedford veterinarians if or when your pet needs dental surgery.
