Our Diagnostic Services
In our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, we are proud to offer advanced diagnostic testing so our vets can provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
With radiographs (digital X-Rays), we're able to examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information we may not be able to see from the outside.
Radiography is a non-invasive, painless and safe. Because it uses only very low doses of radiation and the level of radiation required to perform radiography is so low, even very young pets and pregnant individuals can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs are used to assess organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including broken bones and organs, and diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, fractures, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
Our team of veterinary professionals uses diagnostic imaging to produce extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
With ultrasound imaging, part of the body is exposed to high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, in addition to blood flowing through the blood vessels.
Having this important technology available to our vets in our in-house lab enables our vets to diagnose your dog or cat's condition quickly - and begin treatment sooner.
An endoscope is comprised of a very tiny camera with a light attached to the end of a flexible tube.
When we perform an endoscopy, a long, thin tube is inserted directly into the body to observe an internal organ or tissue in detail.
Minimally invasive endoscopes can be inserted into the openings of the body such as the mouth or anus.
- CT Scans
CT (computed tomography) Scans combine X-Ray images and computer technology to help us identify and diagnose numerous diseases and disorders in your pet's body. They have become an essential imaging tool used in veterinary medicine.
- ECG / EKG
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
- Digital Dental Radiology
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-Rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
With digital X-Rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Windsor vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
