Radiology & Diagnostics
When it comes to diagnosing illnesses and other medical conditions, the physical exam is often the first step. There are many instances in which the second step will involve X-rays, ultrasound, or some other form of diagnostic imaging. Body masses, limping, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal swelling are a few examples of instances that would require advanced diagnostics. Ohio Pet Vet is pleased to offer pet radiology and ultrasound imaging services for our patients in-house. Having these services available in-house means you can get results sooner, and your pet can be treated faster. This is just one of the many ways we provide our patients with high-quality care.
We use digital radiology technology for both the body and when performing dental cleanings. Images are produced in a matter of seconds, resulting in less wait time for you and your four-legged family member. It enables our doctors to diagnose quickly and accurately. For more complex cases, the images can be emailed to a specialist. This technology is also convenient for our traveling or seasonal clients.
Pet radiology is useful for the diagnosis of a number of conditions related to the musculoskeletal, digestive, reproductive, and urinary systems, including fractures/broken bones, foreign bodies, and other conditions.
Our Ohio Pet Vet locations offer ultrasound services to our clients for a multitude of reasons. This advanced diagnostic tool enables us to noninvasively evaluate your pet’s internal organs in real time using high-frequency sound waves. Radiology and ultrasound can also be used conjunctively for a more accurate diagnosis.
With ultrasound imaging, our team can detect:
- Bladder/kidney stones
- Liver/kidney diseases
- Abdominal fluid
- Abnormal lymph nodes
We’re here to help you and your animal companion, so we invite you to reach out to us and schedule an appointment today! And remember–no appointment is needed for emergency cases such as trauma, seizures, etc. We ask that you notify us of your planned arrival time to our hospital as soon as possible.
