DIGITAL X-RAY

digital x-ray imaging for better diagnosis

We have a state of the art digital x-ray to facilitate accurate images that can be reviewed by our Consulting Radiologist  even when not in the hospital!


IN-HOUSE LABORATORY 

We offer the convenience of onsite, same day lab results for many cases.  We are pleased to provide our patients with the ease and benefits of our in-house laboratory.

Conducting these tests while your pet is healthy helps establish baseline values that can be used if your pet becomes ill. These values also assist veterinarians in tracking shifts in values over time, identifying questionable changes early on, before they lead to more serious medical conditions. As your pet enters the senior years, or if he or she has a chronic condition requiring medication, diagnostic and laboratory testing will help ensure the liver, kidneys, and heart are functioning properly. Equipped with the latest in diagnostic equipment, our in-house laboratory can provide immediate results for tests such as:

Blood chemistry panels
CBCs (complete blood counts)
Cytology
Skin analysis

Client Education Resource:  For an excellent resource explaining the types of tests routinely run in our hospital laboratory, follow this link to The Merck Manual Pet Health Edition.  

When diagnostic procedures are needed for your family pet, you can rest easy having same-day results available in many cases. Laboratory and diagnostic tests are an important component of your pet’s comprehensive veterinary health. We can share results of your pet's lab tests, as well as your pet's health record information, with you securely through PETLY,  your pet's portal located right here on our website.  Look for the link on every page. 

PARASITE CONTROL

During your pet’s routine wellness exam, his or her veterinarian will check for fleas and ticks as well as screen for heartworms and other internal parasites. Our veterinarians strongly recommend that all pets be on a year-round parasite control regime—an easy, cost-effective way to keep your pets free from these pesky pests. 

PRE-ANESTHETIC BLOOD WORK

Pre-anesthetic blood work ensures your pet is healthy enough for certain procedures as well as provides his or her veterinarian with useful information in customizing anesthesia and pain management protocols for your pet.

    I love Balboa Pet Hospital! Balboa Pet Hospital's staff is amazing! The staff is knowledgeable, caring and above all honest! I feel confident that my pets are getting the best possible care there. The staff has always taken time to answer all of my questions and if I think of something after my appointment, I can just email! I know I won’t have to wait too long for response.

    Unfortunately, this year I’ve had to make some really difficult decisions. The compassion the staff showed to both my pet and I made these unbearable times tolerable. I am indebted to both Dr. Del Rosso and (the wonderful) Dr. Ravn for their kindness, compassion and dedication.

    If you are new to the area or just looking for a new vet, please give Balboa pet Hospital a call!

    LOVE everything about this place!!! The people are all super nice & caring. I never feel like they’re trying to sell me stuff I don’t need. The vets (especially Dr. Alice Chan) are wonderful, I always fee; comfortable coming here whenever Walle has an issue. They even help me file the insurance claims after each visit! Would highly recommended any pet owners to see them for their fur-baby needs.

    My dog has been a regular patient since 7 years ago. Once in a while we visit other hospitals due to time conflicts. However, we always go back to Balboa Pet Hospital. My dog has bad allergy and the doctors and assistants always follow up with us after the treatments or visits, help us submit the insurance claims. It’s not a cheapest place to go but their patience and caring are irreplaceable.

    I’m glad to have found Balboa Pet Hospital near my home. It’s definitely a hidden gem! Dr. Chan saw my dog, Oreo, for her skin problem last week, and my three cats, Pepper, Tofu and Cola, today for annual check-up. She’s very patient (especially with Oreo who’s shy to strangers), knowledgeable and approachable. The front staffs are also very friendly and helpful. They are so prompt to reply my email (within a few hours when I checked back my mailbox). All my pets are about 1-year-old and I’ll definitely bring them here for their health issues/checkup in many years followed.

  •           5/4/2017

    Brought my dog here for a checkup and some minor concerns. Dr. Chan was very professional. She got my dog the treatment he needed and answered all my questions regarding my concerns. The rest of the staff were very friendly and gentle with my dog. You could tell that the staff are genuine animal lovers; definitely something you want when you entrust the health of your pet to someone.

    Been bringing our animals to Balboa for over 25 years and will continue because they provide great advice and care. We love Dr. D and staff are really helpful and friendly. Now if I can find medical care for myself like my animals get at Balboa...

    The staff is very kind and gentle, the doctors are very caring and patient when dealing with my scared cat Lulu. I appreciate the time they took to put her at ease and making this procedure as painless as possible for the both of us. Will definitely be spreading the word. Thank you Balboa Pet Hospital.
