Diagnostic Imaging for Your Fremont Area Pet
Digital Veterinary Radiographs
Veterinary Video Otoscopy
This type of endoscope allows your veterinarian to examine your pet’s ears for mites, infections, hair balls and other foreign objects lodged in the ear, as well as damage to the ear canal and ear drum. Checking the health of the ear drum also provides important information as to the health of the middle ear, which is where the mechanisms for hearing and balance are located. An otoscope also allows your veterinarian to flush and remove any infectious material from your pet’s ears as well as conduct biopsies.
Performing preventative medicine as well as diagnosing emerging internal health issues requires the ability to perform a wide range of laboratory tests on blood, urine, feces, and biopsied tissue. Without timely access to precise laboratory test results it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis or assessment of your pet’s health.
For example, diagnostic testing can detect heartworm disease, Lyme disease, infections, feline leukemia, intestinal parasites, urinary tract infections, and many additional diseases and conditions that can go unnoticed in their early stages. Early blood testing can show evidence of disease such as diabetes, changes in liver or kidney function, or simply provide a baseline for future reference. Diagnostic testing is also included in pre-anesthetic screenings prior to dental or surgical procedures that require general anesthesia.
