Professional X-Rays for Garner Pets
Diagnostic tests help a vet understand your pet’s health and make decisions as to what treatment likely would have the greatest positive affect. Garner Animal Hospital in Garner uses technology to provide insight into the true state of health of your furry friend. Vets and technicians may use a stethoscope to listen to your dog’s or cat’s heartbeat. They may also use their hands to check for swollen glands and lymph nodes. The following are additional tests that may be ordered by one of our vets:
- Stool samples
- Blood tests
Reliable Lab Tests for Dogs, Cats & Other Animals
Radiology helps staff at veterinary clinics to properly diagnose and treat various conditions that your dog or cat may develop. They can be used to check on your dog’s or cat’s bones, heart, lungs, oral cavity, abdomen and other body parts. They can reveal bone fractures, bladder stones, chronic arthritis, foreign objects, tumors and damage done by worms. Diseases and cancers can alter the size and distort the shape of organs, so the image can help the animal doctor to understand how far an illness may have progressed since it was developed.
Producing digital X-rays or a radiograph is pain-free and minimally invasive. The radiation output is very small and safe even for pregnant females. Combining an X-ray with veterinary lab work allows the vet to truly understand your pet’s condition to diagnose the problem and recommend effective treatment.
