When people get hurt or sick, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and address health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Veterinary Health Center’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the answers and a treatment plan in place the same day.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t enough for a definitive diagnosis, we may recommend x-rays. This will allow us to evaluate internal organs and skeletal structures.
Images can be reviewed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Call Veterinary Health Center right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health.
