Our Pet Diagnostic Services
We are proud to offer advanced diagnostic services using our in-house laboratory. This ensures our veterinarians can provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues, no matter what they may be.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a digital x-ray (also known as a radiograph), we are able to conduct examinations of your pet's inner workings to reveal information, which isn't visible from the outside.
Radiography is non-invasive and safe. It uses very low doses of radiation in its function. Even pregnant or young pets are able to undergo radiography because of its low required radiation exposure levels.
Radiographs are helpful in analyzing organs and bones and to diagnose many conditions such as arthritis, bladder stones, broken bones, some tumors, and spinal cord disease.
Ultrasound imaging works by exposing part of a pet's body to high-frequency sound waves. This produces an image of the inside of their body.
Because we capture these images in real time, we are able to see the movements and structures of your pet's body as they function such as internal organs or blood flowing through their vessels.
