When a person gets sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they aren’t able to 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.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to discover 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 Deepwoods Veterinary Services makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many instances, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
Additional diagnostics services include blood pressure tests, EKG diagnostics and conometry diagnostics.
When a checkup and lab work aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we rely on advanced imaging technology, such as 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 four-legged family member has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Deepwoods Veterinary Services right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
