Radiographs are routinely used as a diagnostic tool. They can usually be performed at the time of the initial consult as we perform the x-rays right on site. These pictures can provide valuable information about your pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract, lungs, heart, and genitourinary system. They are usually used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to help identify the exact cause of a health issue. Often radiographs help to rule out potential problems.
Ultrasound is an advanced tool that can be used to provide further information on a specific health concern. A non-invasive biopsy performed by an experienced technician can provide the answers that are needed for those more challenging cases. A referral for a MRI or CT scan may also be arranged depending on the complexity of the case.
