When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, however, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t always let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and address health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Family Pet Hospital’s convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the answers we need in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and laboratory testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we leverage advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness, and determining its severity.
Digital images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a little unusual lately, don’t take chances. Give the experienced team at Family 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.
