When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to have the latest diagnostic equipment.

Cat in arms of doctor

Digital imaging, including ultrasounds and radiographs are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs and cats. Common conditions diagnosed include but aren't limited to broken bones, joint problems, tumors and problems with internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen and bladder.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging involves using sound waves to create an image on a computer monitor. When our veterinarian passes the wand over an area of your pet, we are able to find otherwise hidden problems. Ultrasound imaging is painless but may also require shaving your pet's fur and/or sedation to ensure that the imaging is as thorough as possible.


The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs such as the heart, lungs, spleen, liver, kidneys, urinary bladder stones, or a foreign body.
