When people get sick or hurt, they visit their doctor, go over their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t let us know when something is troubling them.
What’s more, companion animals are often good at hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to spot and address health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Brentwood Animal Hospital’s 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 loved one even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t sufficient for reaching a diagnosis, we turn to 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.
The results can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your animal friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Call the experienced professionals at Brentwood Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your pet back on the path to good health again.
