State-of-the-Art Imaging Aids Diagnosis & Hastens Recovery
We believe in providing exceptional veterinary care to our patients. That’s why our animal hospital is equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging, including digital radiology, ultrasound, and digital dental X-ray equipment. High-quality imaging facilitates accurate diagnosis, which guides treatment plans and helps your pet feel better sooner.
Ultrasound is another noninvasive diagnostic tool that we have at our animal hospital. Many problems that cannot be diagnosed by radiology can be picked up in an ultrasound. This is the same technology used to view a baby in a pregnant woman. It is useful in imaging the heart (we can actually watch how effectively it beats) and organs in the abdomen (such as the liver, spleen, and bladder). Since ultrasounds are moving, real-time images, they are better than X-rays for diagnosing some conditions.
In our efforts to get your pet well, we will optimize the use of all our diagnostic tools—and all the while handling your pet with gentleness and compassion.
If at any time you have questions about your pet’s diagnostic results, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions. Our hospital offers ultrasound (sonogram) examinations as a non-invasive diagnostic procedure to evaluate your pet's internal organs. Ultrasound can be used to examine the abdominal organs, reproductive organs, eyes and heart. Ultrasound is non-invasive and well tolerated by most pets. In most cases, ultrasound is relatively brief and your pet is able to go home the very same day.
