DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY

Digital radiographs (x-rays) provide for fast analysis of your pet's problem. Your pet’s digital radiographs are available for viewing immediately on-screen without the processing time of traditional film x-rays. This helps our veterinarians get to work devising a strategy for treatment immediately.

Common reasons for dogs and cats to have radiographs are:

  • Fractures
  • Heart disease
  • Intestinal foreign objects
  • Respiratory problems
  • Cancer

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound waves to create a picture of your pets internal organs in real-time. It is a painless, non-invasive way to evaluate and diagnose many common pet diseases. We'll use it to view your pet's organs, and to check for pregnancy, monitor fetal health, or to diagnose and stage (or determine the severity of) some forms of cancer.

In-House Laboratory and Pharmacy

Laboratory testing is an essential way for us to gather more in-depth information about your pet’s health. Since we have an in-house lab, we can do this quickly to get answers usually while your pet is with us. The types of testing we do most often include heartworm and tick-borne disease testing, testing for internal parasites, and blood chemistry and complete blood counts for measuring red and white blood cells.

An in-house pharamcy allows us to get your pet's needed medications during your pet's appointment in orer to get him or her on the right path to treatment when needed.

TONOMETRY

When your pet's eyes are checked during an exam, a further look may be warranted. We offer tonometry as part of our ophthalmology services. Using an instrument called a tonopen, our doctors are able to calculate and measure the pressure of the fluid of the eye. This is important for pets with suspected diseases of the eye, such as glaucoma.

Bring your pet to us for additional eye screening if you notice red or irritated eyes, if your pet has suffered head or eye trauma, and if your pet needs monitored for glaucoma.
