Could an unseen illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When people get sick or injured, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms, and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they aren’t always able to let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, animals are often masters at hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics allow us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the likelihood of a positive outcome.
The convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory at The Animal Clinic makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have result in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment strategy in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These innovative tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Digital images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a little under the weather lately, don’t take chances. Contact The Animal Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
