When humans get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t always let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are capable of hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics help us identify and treat health problems in a timely and effective manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the answers we need in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and laboratory testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools enable us to evaluate the bones and internal organs so we can identify injuries, diagnose illness and determine its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
