Imaging 

Digital X-ray

Digital radiography, or x-rays, provide the state of the art imaging diagnostic tool to our veterinarians allowing immediate interpretation of organ of concern.

Common diseases found on x-rays:

  • Chest -- lung disease (pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma), heart disease
  • Abdomen -- foreign body, masses, organ enlargement or displacement, stones
  • Skeleton -- fractures, arthritis, dysplasia, inflammation, cancer

Ultrasound

  • Minor abdominal scans to evaluate liver, spleen, kidneys, and urinary bladder for any abnormalities or major concerns.
  • Reproductive scan to find out if your pet is pregnant and current condition of the fetuses (pups) or to evaluate the reproductive system if there are medical concerns
  • Major abdominal screenings to evaluate all abdominal organs -- coming soon -- images may be consulted with a specialist of concern Internist or Cardiologist 
  • Echocardiography with option of doppler -- coming soon -- images may be consulted with a specialist of concern Internist or Cardiologist
