In some cases it can take more than a physical exam or an evaluation of visible symptoms to properly diagnose your pet’s illness. Our veterinarians utilize a number of sophisticated diagnostic tools that provide detailed information about your pet’s condition including blood work, x-rays, and ultrasounds. We also have an on-site laboratory that allows for the results of many of these tests to be ready in under 30 minutes, saving crucial time in diagnosing critical injuries or in emergency situations. Advanced diagnostics are also used in our preventative care exams, to help us stop diseases and parasites in their earliest stages, before they can pose a serious risk to your pet’s health.
Also commonly called an “x-ray” this is an imaging tool that provides a non-invasive method of examining your dog or cat’s internal organs. Orthopedic abnormalities, intestinal obstructions, organ enlargement, and other conditions can be discovered by obtaining an x-ray of your pet.
Digital Radiology allows us to share images with other hospitals or specialists instantly giving our clients fast, efficient means of exchanging information and getting a diagnosis for their pet.
This is a diagnostic imaging technique that allows us to look at the heart and lungs in the chest, the liver, kidneys, spleen or abdomen. Veterinary ultrasound is painless, not invasive tool that allows for the visualization of tissues that are not otherwise possible to examine.
Routine fecal screenings, urinalysis, heartworm tests, complete blood counts, pre-surgical screenings and blood chemistry profiles are among the many tests to which our laboratory can provide results quickly.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
Diseases such as kidney failure, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism are often accompanied by high blood pressure. If high blood pressure exists it can be controlled and monitored by our Doctor’s and staff.
If abnormal heart rates or rhythms are detected on your pet’s physical exam our Doctors and staff can identify and treat these problems with in house ECG testing.
