Early detection is key when it comes to treating your pet, and our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with comprehensive in-house diagnostics, including radiology and ultrasound services, as well as endoscopy capabilities. These technologies allow us to diagnose your pet quickly and accurately, providing you with priceless peace of mind.
Depending on the reason for your pet’s visit, we might recommend digital X-rays, or radiographs. X-rays use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease.
Ultrasound is another powerful diagnostic tool at our disposal. Ultrasound creates a real-time image of an animal’s body. This composite reveals important information about internal processes including the circulatory, skeletal and gastrointestinal systems. It can be used to identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, and other internal injuries.
In addition, our doctors are skilled in the use of endoscopy to diagnose disease and in emergency situations. It allows us to view inside your pet’s body and visualize the organs and internal systems without performing surgery.
Endoscopy involves the use of small cameras, which can be guided throughout your pet’s body via small incisions or naturally existing orifices, such as the nose, vagina, bladder, and ear way. Endoscopy is most often used to diagnose issues of the gastrointestinal tract, but, by fitting the cameras, or endoscopes, with specialized instruments, we can even take biopsies when appropriate.
