April 27th is World Veterinary Day, and while our veterinarians work every day to maintain the highest standard of medical care, and to ensure your pet’s life increases in length and quality, we would like to highlight the advanced diagnostics that we offer.
We announced in January that we are now offering CT (or computed tomography) scanning, an advanced diagnostic imaging tool that allows us to get a closer look at any internal part of your pet’s body by way of 3D imaging. Beyond this, however, we have the technology and equipment for multiple other diagnostic processes:
- Digital radiography – Without the need for film or chemicals, we’re able to get your e-rays to you in a quarter of the time—and it’s better for the environment.
- Digital Dental Radiography – The detail provided by this technology allows us to treat diseases that could be otherwise hidden, making the process critical to dental health.
- Ultrasound – This imaging tool lets us examine both the interior and exterior architecture of any organ or body cavity.
- Endoscopy – Being able to see down the windpipe, up the nose, into the bladder or into the middle ear of an animal is incredibly necessary. This process can even be used for birds to examine internal organs.
- Clotting Profiles – With in-house diagnostic capabilities utilizing Hematology, Biochemical Profiles and Electrolytes, we can find answers to your pet’s health problems immediately.
While we don’t wish that your pet requires diagnostics anytime soon, we’re incredibly glad that we have such advanced procedures to offer it should the need arise. If you would like to know more about these diagnostic tools and their uses, contact us.
