Identify Health Problems Quickly and Accurately
At Companion Animal Hospital, our advanced imaging technology is essential to identifying and treating health problems in your pet. We also maintain an in-house laboratory, which allows us to obtain important test results quickly and efficiently.
Ultrasounds are valuable when we need to monitor real-time organ or blood activity. Exams are noninvasive, require no chemicals, and can provide images from various angles quickly and easily. This tool is often used to examine the abdominal region as well as the chest, heart, and any suspicious masses.
At Companion Animal Hospital, we also use radiographs (x-rays) to thoroughly examine your pet. To produce this image, x-ray beams are passed through the body and are captured by a detector (digital or film) on the other side. X-rays are useful to identify changes in bone, irregular shapes in the abdomen, or the presence of foreign objects. X-rays are commonly recommended for broken bones, suspected injuries, or to confirm a pregnancy.
One of the most important diagnostic tools at our disposal are digital x-rays. This technology allows us to examine and distribute images much more quickly and requires less radiation than conventional methods. Similar to the emergence of digital photography, digital imaging is a significant advancement in veterinary care. Our team is proud to offer this valuable service to our clients.
