Our hospital is well equipped with technology that helps us get to the underlying cause of your pet’s health issue. We understand that your pet is your family, and we will always do whatever we can within our expertise to help you when they aren’t doing well. Our advanced diagnostic imaging is a key way that we can get to the root of the issue to help your pet either surgically or medically. Through the use of our CT scanner and in-house ultrasonography, we are able to visually examine the areas inside your pet that are causing problems.
CT scans are non-invasive, but they do require anesthesia, which we carefully monitor during the procedure. Once the scan is performed, it takes some time to view the images, which are made up of thousands of electronic snapshots, that when viewed together, can give us a complete and total view inside your pet’s problem area. We have found the tiniest medical issues using this device and it has helped many pets recover from chronic or acute illness!
Similarly, ultrasonography provides a visual window inside your pets organs and soft tissue. Here we can get an understanding of what may be causing your pet discomfort inside, so that we can create a surgical or medical treatment plan with you and get your pet feeling better.
