Our team uses cutting-edge in-house diagnostics to figure out what’s wrong and provide an accurate diagnosis.

Pet Diagnostic Imaging

A faster diagnosis means faster treatment! We perform diagnostic testing both in-house and with an outside lab in order to provide timely and accurate results. Learn more about our diagnostic imaging below.

A radiograph (also known as an X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be visible from the outside. Internal organs such as the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as bones, can be evaluated using radiography. When it comes to accurately diagnosing your pet, radiology can be a very useful tool in our diagnostic toolbox. Many advances have been made in digital x-ray technology, and we can now manipulate the digital images that we take. This enables us to diagnose problems that would not be visible on a traditional x-ray.


Ultrasound creates images of organs and tissues by using high-frequency sound waves. It is an imaging technique that, like radiology (X-rays), can be used alone or in conjunction with other tests. Ultrasound allows us to see specific internal organs such as the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines. It can also be used to locate and monitor a pregnancy. Because we want you to get the most out of this fantastic diagnostic tool, we work closely with experts – people who have dedicated their lives to imaging.

One of the most significant advantages of ultrasound is that no anesthesia is required. All that remains is to shave the hair around the ultrasonic area.

Endoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that uses a rigid or flexible fiberoptic instrument to examine internal organs without invasive exploratory surgery. The endoscope’s tiny camera transmits images of the body’s internal structures, allowing the Internist to view disease processes and take biopsies for further diagnostics. It is frequently used to remove foreign bodies as well. In some cases, this technique allows for a non-surgical option for pets, reducing anesthesia time as well as hospitalization and recovery time.
