Digital Radiology Services

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our on-site, state-of-the-art digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. Radiology – or X-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, dental, reproductive and urinary systems.

Digital x-rays (radiographs) allow greater sensitivity for viewing all body parts. We are able to diagnose foreign bodies that would not be visible on plain film x-ray. They can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition or to rule out other diseases. Images created in a
digital format also make it much easier to make copies of your pet’s x-rays for referral or travel if needed.

Ultrasound

This state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves rather than radiation (as used in x-rays) to further examine specific internal organs such as the heart, tumors, liver and kidney disease, bladder stones, pregnancy, and much more. It is a pain-free, non-invasive way for veterinarians to diagnose many problems with your pet.

Laboratory

Laboratory tests are essential in the medical care of your pet.

Through our in-house or reference laboratories, we can perform a variety of tests including:

  • Blood profiles
  • Disease screenings
  • Gastrointestinal parasite screenings
  • Pre-surgical bloodwork

Through these tests we can quickly establish base line values and effectively monitor your pet’s condition.
