When people get hurt or sick, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this simple. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are capable of minimizing the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and treat health concerns in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Peterborough West Animal Hospital’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient 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 while you and your pet are still in the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, like x-rays and ultrasound. These tools enable us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
X-rays and ultrasound 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 out of the ordinary lately, don’t take chances. Contact Peterborough West Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
