Advanced Diagnostic Care

Our veterinary hospital utilizes advanced diagnostic testing for the accurate diagnosis of your pet’s health condition. This includes:

Digital Radiography & Digital Dental Radiography

Digital Radiography, or digital X-rays, are a common imaging tool we use to examine your pet’s organs and their cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. This non-invasive procedure allows us to get a better look at the conditions affecting your pet.

Digital x-rays produce a higher quality image than film x-rays and are available instantly. Digital radiology is also much safer than traditional radiology, as there is less time spent exposed to harmful radiation.

Digital dental radiography allows our veterinarians to view under your pet’s gumline and view your pet’s jaw and bone structures, allowing us to perform a complete dental diagnosis.

Digital radiology is used to:

  • Find foreign objects or materials within the body that may have been ingested.
  • Diagnose fractures, bone and/or joint abnormalities, and various injuries.
  • Screen for abnormalities within the heart, lungs, urinary, and digestive organs.
  • Screen for some types of cancer.
  • Examine teeth for bone loss, fractures, or other dental issues.

Laboratory Testing

We have an in-house laboratory that allows us to quickly evaluate and diagnose your pet’s health using tests such as routine fecal screenings, urinalysis, heartworm tests, complete blood counts, pre-surgical screenings, and blood chemistry profiles.

CT Scanning

We can also offer in-hospital CT (computed tomography) scanning, a non-invasive procedure providing highly accurate, state-of-the-art radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of trauma, tumors/masses, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease, orthodontic movement, dental disease, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. CT scanning provide anatomically accurate images before, during and after your pet is under anesthesia, which allows our team to provide information for you and treatment for your pet quickly and efficiently.
