Copeland Veterinary Hospital provides complete diagnostic capabilities for your pet. This includes digital x-rays, electrocardiograms (ECG), an 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 pharamcy allows us to get your pet's needed medications during your pet's appointment in orer 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.
Kudos to Copeland Veterinary Hospital
These people are wonderful!! I rushed my boy in as fast as I could because he was having an emergency and even though they had closed the front desk, they let me in to make sure he would be okay! Absolutely my new veterinarians from now on!

I have been using Copeland for my pet services for several years and while I always receive such amazing service and the staff is always so helpful just have to brag on them a little more. My dog began to be violently sick on a Saturday. I called the emergency number and was immediately connected to a doctor. Even it being so late on a Saturday evening, Dr. Josh came to the office and prescribed medication. He was friendly, great bedside manner and put me to ease right away. I could go on and on about the great staff of Copeland Veterinary. Not only do they treat your pet like their own, they take both their safety and the safety of their clients very seriously during this pandemic. In my life, I have seen many vets, many people who work in the animal business but everyone at Copeland is the very best and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

Staff and doctors are amazing. My little puppy broke her leg and they were so fast to get her in and taken care of. Dr Baker is an amazing surgeon and him and the whole staff are so caring. He kept us informed the entire time our baby was with them and he personally called to check on her several times after she came home just to make sure was doing ok. I would highly recommend them!!

We couldn't be more pleased with the wonderful advice and care that we have received from Copeland's staff. If you want to work with people who truly care about your pet's well-being, Copeland's is the way to go.

Have been to this vet twice with the same dog and two different emergency situations and the second time was on Christmas Day and they were great both times with my fur baby! Sent text message updates with pictures and daily phone calls to let us know how she was doing!
