Equipment & Diagnostic Services
The medical team at our hospital has a variety of diagnostic tools that can be used to help detect diseases and monitor ongoing medical conditions.
Digital Radiography: Our in-house x-ray machine utilizes advanced digital technology that allows us to see an image within seconds of taking the x-ray. The digital technology means less radiation is needed and the images are very detailed.
Abdomen Ultrasound: This imaging method is useful in being able to see inside certain organs such as the bladder, kidneys, liver, and several others. The doctors at our hospital have undergone special training to become proficient, and have all been doing ultrasounds for years.
Cardiac Ultrasound: With this form of ultrasound the doctors are able to see how your pet’s heart functions and look for abnormalities with the muscles or valves. This is a very important part of diagnosing and treating your pet’s heart condition.
Other Diagnostic Tests
Tonometry: This is a small pen-like device that is used to measure the pressure of the eyes. This is most often used when a patient is suspected of having Glaucoma, elevated eye pressure. This is a quick, convenient, painless test, and results are instantaneous.
Electrocardiogram: Also known as an ECG, this testing device measures the electrical activity of the heart, and is a useful diagnostic tool that provides fast results.
