When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to have the latest diagnostic equipment, including full radiology capabilities and ultrasound machines.
Ultrasound imaging involves using sound waves to create an image on a computer monitor. When our team passes the wand over an injured area of your pet, we are able to find otherwise hidden problems, like when your pet accidentally eats something that isn’t food, has a tumor, or has problems with an internal organ, like the stomach, spleen, liver, and pancreas. Ultrasound imaging is completely painless and does not have any side-effects. This is our favorite way to confirm pregnancies as well.
The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints, and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs, like the heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys.
If we believe your pet is in need of further imaging such as a CT scan or MRI, our staff will discuss these options with you, as well as get you information on facilities that have these specialty capabilities.
