Could an undiagnosed illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When people get sick or become injured, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the corresponding care. With animals, however, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because our pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics allow us 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.
The on-site diagnostic laboratory at Healing Touch Veterinary Wellness Center makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the answers we need in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan established before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t enough to achieve a diagnosis, we rely on advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools enable us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Digital images can then be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet 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 loved one back on the path to good health again.
