Providing exceptional veterinary care means equipping our doctors and staff with the latest in modern diagnostic equipment. Using these tools, we can ensure that each of our pet clients receive a fast, accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. While routine physical exams play a significant role in your pet’s health, there are times when more advanced tools are necessary.
Digital X-Rays and Ultrasound Imaging
The use of digital radiographs (x-rays) is critical in assessing medical conditions and injuries in pets. X-rays are a non-invasive way our doctors can obtain an image of your pet’s bones, joints, and organs. They’re also used to more accurately observe and diagnose conditions. Radiographs can help us detect issues ranging from broken bones and foreign body ingestion to the diagnosis of soft tissue problems and cancer.
Like an x-ray, an ultrasound is another non-invasive procedure that uses sound waves to penetrate internal organs, creating an image that can be used by our veterinarians to diagnose and treat internal medical conditions. Ultrasounds are commonly used to detect liver disease, kidney disease, heart murmurs, pregnancy, birth defects, and more.
Other laboratory diagnostics we offer include:
- Full diagnostic bloodwork (complete blood count and chemistry)
- Internal parasite screening
- Fungal cultures
- Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus
