Our Diagnostic Services
We are proud to provide our clients advanced diagnostic testing with our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab. This vet lab allows our veterinarians to offer an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical conditions.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
With a radiograph (digital X-ray), we are able to examine the internal systems of your pet to reveal information that might be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is painless, non-invasive and safe for your animal companion. It only uses very low amounts of radiation. Because the required level of radiation exposure to perform radiography is so low, pregnant females and very young pets are able to undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be utilized to examine pet's bones and organs, and to diagnose conditions such as broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and several tumors.
- Digital Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog has periodontal disease, lots of the damage occurs below the gum line where it can not be easily seen. Digital dental X-Rays help our vets examine your animal companion's oral health.
Digital dental X-Rays are safe for your pet and allow our veterinary team to assess the roots, bones and internal anatomy of your dog or cat's teeth.
The risk of radiation exposure with digital X-Rays for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We can see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate every tooth.
This technology lets your Edgewater vet see results immediately and project them onto a computer screen for review.
