Could an illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are good at hiding the signs of illness. Meanwhile, it’s able to develop and worsen as it continues to go undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable the team at Thetis Heights Veterinary Clinic identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our convenient in-house diagnostic laboratory makes it quick and easy to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in mere minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your loved one even leave the exam room.
When an external checkup and lab work aren’t sufficient to reach a diagnosis, we rely on advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to examine the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit under the weather lately, don’t take chances. Call the dedicated professionals at Thetis Heights Veterinary Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
