Diagnostics & Imaging at Poulsbo Animal Clinic

At Poulsbo Animal Clinic, our use of the latest technology in diagnostics and imaging allows us to thoroughly understand and address your pet’s health needs. We offer comprehensive diagnostic services to provide a complete picture of your animal companion’s health, enabling us to accurately diagnose and commence treatment promptly.

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology, also known as X-rays, is a crucial diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. It is a painless, non-invasive method that produces high-definition images of various body parts, including the heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, oral cavity, and bones. These radiographs are instrumental in identifying issues like decaying teeth or tumors that might not be apparent in routine exams.


Ultrasound examinations utilizing high-frequency sound waves are another vital diagnostic procedure. They are non-invasive and pain-free, producing real-time images of your pet’s organs. This technique is particularly effective in identifying a range of pathological conditions. We use advanced ultrasound equipment and in-house consultations with Dr. Middleton, a veterinary radiologist, to ensure the highest standard of diagnostic care for your pet.

Electrocardiograms (EKG/ECG)

Electrocardiograms are used to assess and monitor the health of your pet’s cardiovascular system. This diagnostic test measures the heart’s electrical activity using electrodes placed on the skin, displayed as tracings of waves. Our modern ECG system, managed by experienced veterinary technicians, helps in determining heart functionality and identifying any arrhythmias. We collaborate with Dr. Jerry Woodfield, a veterinary cardiologist, for precise interpretations.

Diagnostic Lab Work

Our in-house and external laboratory services play a vital role in your pet’s healthcare. Utilizing Idexx Laboratories equipment, our in-house lab performs various tests, including serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis, and parasite testing. For specialized testing, we partner with external labs that ensure timely processing, aiding in the swift treatment of your pet.

Our veterinary team is committed to providing the best diagnostic care and is ready to address any questions or concerns regarding your pet’s health. Contact us to learn more about our diagnostic services and how we can assist in maintaining your animal friend’s well-being.
