Could an illness or injury be bothering your pet?
When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, describe their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this simple. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is wrong.
What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable the Armitage Animal Clinic team to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
When a physical exam and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. With these tools, we can evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our team in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your furry family member has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your pet back on the path to good health again.
Ultrasound imaging technology provides our doctors with a non-invasive way to learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body so we can diagnose potential health concerns. Ultrasound imaging is safe and painless, and produces highly-accurate images that enable us to evaluate how your pet’s body is functioning.
Some of the many conditions ultrasound can be used to evaluate and diagnose include:
- Heart disease
- Bladder and/or kidney stones
- Diseases of the organs (liver, kidney, gallbladder, etc.)
- Gastrointestinal concerns
Armitage Animal Clinic is pleased to offer ultrasound imaging as part of our comprehensive diagnostic services.
Our on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it quick and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your loved one even leave the exam room.
