Pet Radiology & Ultrasound
While laboratory work is essential for monitoring the well-being of a pet, it does fall short in diagnosing other chronic or dangerous issues.
We offer our clients full-digital radiographic services (commonly referred to as x-rays). We use the latest in advanced computerized radiology equipment as part of your pet’s diagnostic care. By using digital radiographs, we can easily capture x-rays as a computer file, send them off for a board-certified radiologist to review for a second opinion and we can also store them in your pet’s individual record. Finally, if for those clients that need to take radiographs with them, we have the ability to download your pet’s radiographs (x-rays) onto a CD to take with you.
Ultrasound is an invaluable, complementary diagnostic tool to radiographs that can assist the veterinarians in localizing diseases such as cancer (by finding tumors), differentiate between chronic and acute diseases of the kidneys or liver, can diagnose urinary diseases such as crystalluria, bladder stones, and can help in the assessment of foreign bodies and other gastrointestinal diseases. Routine ultrasounds can be provided by some of our veterinarians on staff but we also have the option of offering board-certified ultrasounds by our traveling cardiologist, Dr. Mark Stamoulis.
