Radiology, or x-ray technology, provides our doctors with the ability to examine the inner workings of your pet’s body, particularly the bones and joints. X-rays can be particularly helpful in diagnosing orthopedic conditions, such as fractures, hip dysplasia, and arthritis. Radiology can also be used to view the heart, lungs, and abdomen, allowing for the diagnosis of heart disease, bladder stones, tumors and more. With x-rays, we can quickly and accurately diagnose health problems so we can work on getting your pet back to good health again as soon as possible.
Ultrasound is one of the most important noninvasive diagnostic tools available to veterinarians today. It provides our doctors with real-time, highly detailed images of your pet’s organs. This state of the art technology uses sound waves to examine the specific functions of internal organs, such as the lungs and the heart.
There are times when a physical exam is simply not enough to diagnose your pet’s health concerns. Our hospital is equipped with in-house laboratory tests, many of which provide results within minutes. Some of these include heartworm testing, blood chemistry analysis, urinalysis and fecal examinations. When extensive tests are needed we collaborate with other commercial & University laboratories.
