Looking at your pet from the outside will not tell us what’s happening inside. To understand their health from every angle, we use diagnostic imaging and lab testing to help us fill in the blanks. Here in Ocoee, FL, our veterinarians and staff have access to advanced digital X-ray technology and lab equipment that allows us to perform various blood and fecal tests. Some of the most common conditions we can treat with the help of our diagnostic tools include:
- Allergies and skin disorders
- Ear infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Chronic vomiting/diarrhea
- Kidney disease
- Hypo- and hyperthyroidism
- Intestinal worms
If your pet is unwell, contact us at (407) 656-6050 to schedule a checkup as soon as possible.
Digital X-ray for Dogs and Cats
X-ray is another tool we can use to evaluate and diagnose our patients. As with blood and fecal testing, X-ray can reveal things that can’t be detected with the naked eye. Our pets can’t speak for themselves, so it’s essential for our team to get as much information as possible in order to make an accurate assessment. If blood testing proves insufficient for determining the root cause of a health problem, we might suggest radiographs as the next step.
With X-ray, our goal is to obtain a visual of any potential problems associated with the bones and joints, or the heart and lungs. We might also be able to pick up on a foreign body, if you suspect your pet has eaten something they can’t digest.
