When people get sick or hurt, they visit their doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, the solution isn’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen while it remains 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 chances of a positive outcome.
The on-site diagnostic laboratory at Westside Pet Hospital makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your best friend even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and laboratory work aren’t enough to reach a definitive diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, like x-rays and ultrasound. These tools let us evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if deemed necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give Westside Pet Hospital a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
