Diagnostics

When an animal is sick or has been injured, it’s not always easy to recognize the signs of a problem. This is especially true for pets that have a high tolerance for pain or show few outward symptoms. Since our pets cannot speak, they cannot tell us when they’re feeling under the weather. Nor can they explain their symptoms or point to where it hurts. For this reason, veterinarians must often don their detective hats and set out to solve the mystery at hand as quickly and accurately as possible.

To aid us in our investigations, we turn to veterinary diagnostics. These invaluable tools allow our experienced doctors to get a glimpse inside your pet’s body and learn exactly what’s happening so that a timely diagnosis can be reached and an appropriate treatment plan developed. The sooner we can crack the case, the better the chances of a full and speedy recovery for your pet.

All Pets Medical & Surgical Center offers a comprehensive array of diagnostic services to manage the ongoing health of our patients. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
  • ECG
  • Blood Analyzers
  • Ultrasound Imaging
  • Video Otoscope

On-Site Laboratory

Our state of the art hospital is outfitted with a fully equipped diagnostic laboratory. This enables our doctors to achieve test results in a matter of minutes. This is especially important for those illnesses and injuries that require immediate treatment for optimum results. In most cases, we can have the answers we need to develop and implement a treatment plan before you and your pet ever even leave the exam room.

Digital Radiology (X-Ray)

Radiology involves taking a snapshot of the inside of your pet’s body. X-rays allow our doctors to evaluate the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary function, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive system and more. The use of digital radiology involves much less exposure to radiation, while allowing our doctors instant access to digital images that can be evaluated immediately or shared electronically with veterinary specialists as needed.

Ultrasound

Similar to x-rays, ultrasound imaging provides a non-invasive way to view the inner workings of your pet’s body. This state of the art technology involves the use of sound waves which produce a detailed view of the internal organs. Ultrasound is primarily used to evaluate the heart and abdominal organs, but it can also be used to confirm and monitor pregnancy.

Specialists

On some occasions, our doctors may feel that the advice or recommendations of a veterinary specialist are warranted. For such instances, APMSC has established long-term, working relationships with a number of highly qualified veterinary professionals that offer specialized care in the areas of cardiology, dermatology, oncology, neurology, ophthalmology and more. Should we feel that your pet would benefit from the care of one of these professionals, we will gladly provide a referral.
