Digital Radiology

Digital Radiology is available on-site for the immediate diagnosis of trauma, foreign bodies, fractured bones, tissue health and organs. Once radiographs are taken, our skilled veterinarians interpret the findings and send images to a boarded radiologist for a second opinion.

We also have 24/7 access to a boarded radiologist to review your pet’s films allowing us to provide the highest level of diagnosis in minutes.

Our practice offers a non-invasive imaging technique by utilizing ultrasound exams that allows internal organs to be seen by recording echoes or reflections of ultrasonic waves. This is a safer technique compared to x-rays.

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a general name for a range of procedures (including bronchoscopy, colonoscopy, cystoscopy, gastroduodenoscopy, and rhinoscopy) in which an endoscope is used to look inside and perform actions inside of animals. Endoscopy not only allows visualization of certain organs, but also allows sampling of tissues (biopsy) for cytological, histologic, culture evaluation, as well as possible foreign body retrieval when necessary.
