Veterinary Diagnostic Lab
We use technologies like electromagnetic radiation for our diagnostic imaging procedures. These allow us to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal systems and structures.
At Goleta Airport Pet Hospital, we have advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We offer a variety of services, from digital radiology to ultrasound.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition and provide immediate treatment options.

Our Diagnostic Services
Using our in-house veterinary diagnostic lab, we are proud to be able to offer advanced diagnostic testing to your pet in order to allow our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of any health issues your pet may be experiencing.
- 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 a painless, non-invasive and safe diagnostic procedure. Since it only uses very low doses of radiation to construct diagnostic images, even pregnant female pets or very young pets are able to undergo this procedure as part of their care at our hospital.
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.
The usage of diagnostic imaging technologies and tools allows our team of veterinary professionals to craft extremely detailed images of your pet's internal systems and structures.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body.
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.
Having this technology available to our vets in our in-house lab also means that your cat or dog's condition can be diagnosed quickly and their treatment plan can be customized to their needs.
- Digital Dental X-rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental x-rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital x-rays are safer for your pet than traditional x-rays. they allow our veterinary team to examine your companion's bones, roots and internal tooth anatomy without issue.
With digital x-rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional x-ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Goleta vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
