When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal friends can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics allow us to identify and treat health concerns in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
The on-site diagnostic laboratory at The Corner Vet 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.
In cases where a physical exam and lab work aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These advanced tools allow us to 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 necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your furry family member back on the path to good health again.
