When people get sick or injured, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the necessary care. With animals, it’s not always this straightforward. Because pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are capable of disguising 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 chances of a positive outcome.
Animal Care Center’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just a few minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your companion even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t sufficient for achieving a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, such as x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, spotting injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our team in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if deemed necessary.
