Flatt veterinary Clinic provides complete diagnostic capabilities for your pet. This includes digital x-rays, electrocardiograms (ECG), and in-house laboratory, in-house pharmacy, tonometry, and ultrasound.
Digital radiographs (x-rays) provide for fast analysis of your pet's problem. Your pet’s digital radiographs are available for viewing immediately on-screen without the processing time of traditional film x-rays. This helps our veterinarians get to work devising a strategy for treatment immediately.
Common reasons for dogs and cats to have radiographs are:
- Heart disease
- Intestinal foreign objects
- Respiratory problems
Ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound waves to create a picture of your pets internal organs in real-time. It is a painless, non-invasive way to evaluate and diagnose many common pet diseases. We'll use it to view your pet's organs, and to check for pregnancy, monitor fetal health, or to diagnose and stage (or determine the severity of) some forms of cancer.
In-House Laboratory and Pharmacy
Laboratory testing is an essential way for us to gather more in-depth information about your pet’s health. Since we have an in-house lab, we can do this quickly to get answers usually while your pet is with us. The types of testing we do most often include heartworm and tick-borne disease testing, testing for internal parasites, and blood chemistry and complete blood counts for measuring red and white blood cells.
An in-house pharmacy allows us to get your pet's needed medications during your pet's appointment in order to get him or her on the right path to treatment when needed.
When your pet's eyes are checked during an exam, a further look may be warranted. We offer tonometry as part of our ophthalmology services. Using an instrument called a tonopen, our doctors are able to calculate and measure the pressure of the fluid of the eye. This is important for pets with suspected diseases of the eye, such as glaucoma.
Bring your pet to us for additional eye screening if you notice red or irritated eyes, if your pet has suffered head or eye trauma, and if your pet needs monitored for glaucoma.
What our clients have to say:
The staff takes such good care of all my animals from our bearded dragon our chinchillas and kitten. You can really tell about a person by the way animals attract to a person. I would highly recommend...

Very helpful, kind, and patient with our rescue dog, who HATES getting his nails trimmed.
-- C. Farley
Forever grateful to the fantastic vets and staff at Flatt Veterinary. My senior cat needed emergency euthanasia on a very icy day in January. Most offices were closed due to the bad weather, but not Flatt Veterinary. The staff immediately told me to bring her in, met me at my car, and were extremely kind and gentle throughout the most heart wrenching experience of my life. They had to shave a patch of fur to insert the IV and saved it for me to keep. They also gave me time alone to say goodbye and to mourn after she had passed. They were even kind enough to send a bereavement card.
I know these aren't the moments we like to think about when choosing a vet, but these are the moments that matter the most. When my pet was in incurable pain, Flatt Veterinary was there to help her find peace.

Took my Annabelle here for her first shots and worming. They were very friendly with us and we got her first shots for a great price. My dog is very scared of things at this age and they made her feel very comfortable!
