When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to use our diagnostic equipment to find out what is happening.
Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology
Digital radiographic images are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs and cats. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, accidental ingestion, joint problems, tumors, or possible issues with internal organs.
Our veterinary team can rapidly diagnose your pet’s injury or condition. Once the veterinarian understands the depth of your pet’s illness or injury, a treatment plan will be developed in order to help your pet heal and restore their health. If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s health and his or her diagnosis, we would be happy to answer them and provide you with guidance in order to help make them as comfortable as possible during the healing process.
The common term for a radiograph is an "x-ray". Most x-ray images can diagnose problems and conditions such as broken bones, swelling in the joints, and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to determine problems with internal organs such as the heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys.
Some diagnostic tools that are available like CT Scans, Ultrasounds, or MRIs are used by veterinary specialists. Clinic veterinarians are just like your own general practitioners who have a network of facilities to refer out for the services you might need. If your pet's diagnosis requires more involved testing, the veterinarian will refer you to specialists in the area.
However, the pandemic has stretched the veterinary community to its limits--especially in large cities. You might need to go a bit farther than the city limits, but we will do our best to connect you to the service available for your pet's treatment.
