Radiology

Radiographs (X-rays) provide a complete picture of your pet’s:

  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Respiratory system
  • Gastrointestinal system
  • Reproductive system
  • Urinary system

High-quality X-rays are an imperative step in ensuring an accurate diagnosis.

Our radiographs are done on-site and results are available immediately.

Ultrasonography

This process allows us to obtain a three dimensional image of your pet’s organs.

This non-invasive, state of the art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs.

We can visualize the:

  • Heart
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Kidneys
  • Stomach
  • Intestines
  • Pancreas
  • Adrenal glands
  • Bladder

When diseases of the liver or kidney are suspected, the ultrasound can give us more detailed information on the extent of the suspected lesion.

We can also use the ultrasound to help guide our biopsy needles into the exact suspicious area of the organ.

This allows for more accurate, thorough diagnosis.

We strongly recommend an ultrasound on all of our cardiac patients, especially cats.

Older cats are prone to HCM—Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. This is a disease in which the heart muscle hypertrophies, decreasing the available volume of blood to be moved through the heart.

Radiographs will not diagnose this disease; it can only be diagnosed via ultrasound.

This disease is fatal without specific and appropriate medical management.

Ultrasound is also helpful with pregnancy exams, tendon evaluation, fluid collection and biopsies.
