When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our furry family members can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is wrong.
What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics allow us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the odds of a positive outcome.
Our convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it quick and efficient to run a broad spectrum of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just a few moments. This means we can have a treatment strategy in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a checkup and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to 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 evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting unusual lately, don’t take chances. Contact Aldershot 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.
