onsite x-ray and ultrasound services
Diagnostic imaging is used to screen for disease inside of the body. This includes x-rays and ultrasound. Our hospital has a fully equipped digital x-ray suite which produces images within seconds. We may also communicate with board-certified radiologists via telemedicine for complex cases and specialist evaluation. We are proud to be an early industry adopter of Hands-Free Radiology techniques which translates into less stress to the patient, better quality x-rays, and increased safety for our team members.
We also utilize digital x-ray imaging for our dental procedures. Dental x-rays are vital for fully assessing pet dental health as it gives us an idea of what is happening below the gum line which can not be seen otherwise with our eyes alone.
We are very fortunate to offer onsite ultrasound services and often can provide same day and emergency service as we have an experienced veterinary sonographer on staff. Ultrasound uses sound waves to evaluate internal organs. Ultrasound can be used to look at structures in the abdomen, chest, neck and muscles and joints, and is also used to perform echocardiograms, an essential tool to evaluate the heart. Telemedicine services with board-certified veterinary cardiologists are also available for heart cases when needed.
