In-House Pet Diagnostics
In-house diagnostic facilities to help us to speedily diagnose potential issues in our patients.
Many of the problems that we see can be dealt with during a routine appointment and clinical examination.
However, more complicated problems may require further tests or investigations before we can make a full pet diagnosis and create a treatment plan.
We are very proud of our excellent facilities which help us carry out a wide range of diagnostic procedures within our premises. This means we can offer our clients peace of mind that when more complicated problems arise, the time between first appointment, diagnosis and starting an effective treatment regime is kept to a minimum.
Our digital x-ray facilities allow us to make a rapid diagnosis. These are used in numerous investigations such as diagnosing broken bones, investigating chest problems, checking for gut obstructions, identifying bladder stones, investigating possible cancerous growths and many more cases.
Where necessary, we can send x-rays for specialist opinions for more complex cases.
We have ultrasound machines at all three branches, which are regularly used to help to understand abnormalities within the abdomen and chest. We can achieve excellent visualisation of internal organs non-invasively, often with only a mild sedation.
Our ECG machine allows us to investigate cardiac problems.
Our modern Tonovets measure eye pressure, enabling the rapid diagnosis and management of urgent eye conditions such as glaucoma and uveitis.
We have blood pressure machines in each branch which are used to diagnose and monitor abnormalities in blood pressure; either hyper (high) or hypo (low) tension.
