When you are sick or have become injured in some way, the solution is simple. You go see your doctor, explain the situation and receive the appropriate care. Managing the ongoing health of our animal friends, on the other hand, isn’t always this straightforward.
Because animals cannot speak, they can’t tell us when they’re not feeling well, nor can they explain their symptoms or point out where it hurts. It’s up to us, as pet owners and veterinary professionals, to identify and address potential health concerns in the most timely and effective manner. In instances when an external physical exam simply isn’t enough to reach a definitive diagnosis, we turn to veterinary diagnostics to help us crack the case.
Diagnostics allow our experienced vets to examine your pet from the inside out to quickly and accurately identify and treat the problem so we can get them back on the path to good health again as soon as possible. Pet Med Clinic utilizes a wide variety of diagnostic tools to help manage the health of our patients. Whether it’s a simple blood test, an ultrasound image or digital radiographs, we’re fully prepared and well equipped to get to the bottom of whatever may be ailing your animal companion.
Our hospital features an convenient in-house laboratory, which aids in the fast and accurate retrieval of test results. This is especially important for those illnesses and injuries for which a timely diagnosis is critical. In most cases, we can have the answers we need before you even leave the exam room. The sooner we can identify and address the problem, the better the chances of a positive outcome for your loved one.
If your four-legged friend hasn’t been acting quite like his or herself, and you suspect there may be an underlying illness or injury to blame, give us a call. Our comprehensive diagnostic services will help us to manage the situation in the most effective way possible.
