Veterinary Diagnostic Lab

At Picayune Veterinary Clinic, we are equipped with advanced tools to help diagnose your animal's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital veterinary radiology and thermal imaging to ultrasound and cold lasers. 

Radiographic imaging allows us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal structures and digital thermal imaging to detect areas of inflammation in your animal's body.

With our diagnostic imaging services, we can efficiently produce detailed information about your animal's condition and provide immediate treatment options.

Our Pet Diagnostic Services 

With our in-house veterinary diagnostics laboratory and endoscopy services, we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing that allows our vets to provide rapid diagnosis of your animal's medical issues.

  • Radiography (Digital X-rays)

    Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside. 

    Radiography is safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure. 

    Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors. 

  • Digital Thermal Imaging

    At Picayune Veterinary Clinic we have Digatherm Digital Thermal Imaging as part of our range of diagnostic imaging technologies.

    This system uses an infrared camera and Digatherm medical imaging software to detect areas of inflammation in your pet's body, allowing us to precisely pinpoint the source of your pet's discomfort.

  • Ultrasound

    With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the body's insides. Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.


  • Endoscopy

    An endoscope is comprised of a very tiny camera with a light attached to the end of a flexible tube.

    When we perform an endoscopy, a long, thin tube is inserted directly into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail.

    Minimally invasive endoscopes can be inserted into the openings of the body such as the mouth or anus.

  • Bloodwork

    At our vet lab in Picayune we are able to run a number of common and specialized blood tests to determine the health of your pet, and to diagnose illness.

    Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile. 

  • Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.

    Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

    This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health. 

  • Fecal Exam

    A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Picayune.

    The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms. 

    Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.

    Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.

    Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
