Veterinary Diagnostic Services Can Give a More Accurate Diagnosis

Because your pet cannot tell us in words where he or she is uncomfortable or what ails him or her, modern diagnostic tests, combined with the physical exam, can help us pinpoint the cause of discomfort, illness, or injury and choose the right course of treatment.

The best diagnostic tool Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic can offer is a thorough physical examination including a complete medical history of your pet. Our veterinarians take the time to get to know your pet and we will ask you questions about his or her lifestyle, habits, and previous illnesses or injuries. Your observations are one of our most valuable resources.

When we need to know more about your pet, we use the latest in diagnostic equipment and tests, all available right here at our clinic.

Computer-Aided Tomography (CT)

Our facility includes on-premises access to computed tomography to examine the internal structure of your pet. CT provides invaluable information in the diagnosis of nasal, chest cavity, and abdominal disease and in planning for surgery.


High-tech fiber optics permits direct visual examination and biopsies of your pet’s gastrointestinal, nasal, reproductive, and respiratory systems. This allows for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment, and also the removal of foreign objects without the need for surgery.


Laparoscopy equipment is used to perform minimally invasive surgery for organ biopsy, exploration of joints, and neutering procedures without the need for major surgery.

On-site Laboratory

Our on-site laboratory allows us to test blood, urine, and fecal samples in a timely manner. This helps us make a rapid diagnosis and allows us to begin treatment for your pet as quickly as possible.


Radiographs — or X-rays — help our veterinarians evaluate musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. We have high-tech digital equipment at Loomis Basin. All radiographs we take are reviewed and interpreted by a board-certified radiologist at no additional charge to you.


This noninvasive, advanced technology uses sound waves to examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available using this diagnostic technique.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.

Same-Day Veterinary Care

We understand that sometimes your pet needs to be seen sooner rather than later. To solve this problem, VCA Loomis Basin offers Same-Day Care appointments to accommodate client requests for “emergency” or “urgent” care during normal business hours or last-minute appointment requests. Same-Day Care is a much-needed service that helps keep the regularly scheduled appointments on track; however, clients may have to wait while other pets are being triaged.
