Medical and Diagnostic Care

If your pet needs medical assistance, you can feel confident turning to us. Our knowledgeable staff is equipped to handle a wide variety of medical conditions, including emergencies. With the technology to perform many diagnostic procedures in-house, we can often produce immediate results and start treating your pet faster. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization and further diagnostic tests. Please take a look at the more detailed descriptions of medical services we offer, or call us to discuss your pet’s needs.

Medical Assessment

By |

A physical exam is necessary to ensure a proper diagnosis. We begin a medical assessment by looking at your pet’s eyes, ears, and skin and checking his or her cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, and skeletal systems for any abnormalities. We will perform blood and/or urine tests as necessary to check your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system, including the thyroid and adrenal glands. Based on your pet’s condition, we may recommend further diagnostic tests, such as radiography (x-rays), endoscopy (internal scoping), ultrasound, or biopsy. When more extensive diagnostics are necessary, we may refer to one of the many specialists that we are lucky to have in the area.

In-House Laboratory

Whether your pet is having surgery or just feeling under the weather, we can perform bloodwork on-site to get answers quickly. We can perform a comprehensive blood count, full chemistry profile and urinalysis all in-house to help your pet.

Radiology (X-rays)

By |

When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem. We are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film).

This state-of-the-art technology allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Plus, it uses less radiation than traditional x-rays.

To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia.

If you have any questions about our radiology service or what to expect during your pet’s procedure, please don’t hesitate to ask.
