We generally can have results in a short while and this can help us make a speedier and more accurate diagnosis. We also strongly believe in using the major outside labs. There we can consult with a specialist and seek their opinion after the blood work is completed.
We have modern x-ray equipment and an automatic processor. On-site radiology is a valuable diagnostic tool which can evaluate bone damage such as fractures, dislocations, arthritis and more. We can also assess your pet's internal organs. This gives us a lot more information and allows a more informed diagnosis.
We have endoscopic equipment which can be used to view the esophagus, stomach and small bowel without surgery. We can obtain small samples of tissue from these areas and send them for histology.
