Our wide range of diagnostic tools allow us to safely and accurately diagnose and treat your pet in a timely manner.
Radiographs (x-rays) are used to assess veterinary conditions and injuries requiring more than a physical examination. We use radiographs to detect foreign bodies, broken bones, and other internal conditions. While the process of performing an x-ray is painless, your pet may benefit from a sedative or pain injection for comfort.
At our hospital, we use digital x-rays, which offer clearer images, rapid viewing, and faster second opinions from a boarded specialist.
Through the use of a flexible scope and a lighted camera, endoscopy provides us with clear, unobstructed views of your pet’s internal organs. As a result, we are able to remove foreign bodies and diagnose cancerous growths, polyps, and gastrointestinal issues.
Using high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time images, ultrasound allows us to see inside the internal organ and look for areas of disease and infection. This also helps us evaluate the functions of the organs to ensure they’re working properly. In addition, we can obtain core biopsies and perform tests such as echocardiograms, which are ultrasounds of the heart.
We work closely with several veterinary specialists to ensure your pet receives the best care possible.
For readings of radiographs and ultrasounds and to confirm diagnoses, we work with Dr. Elizabeth Watson. She is a board certified radiologist and the owner of Veterinary Imaging, a radiology referral service in South Florida.
We also work closely with Dr. Beth Gibbins of Animal Eye Care Center, Dr. James Milton of Veterinary Surgical Center, Dr. Nikki Plunkett of Alabama Veterinary Surgical Services, and the Auburn University Veterinary Teaching Hospital when referrals are necessary.
