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, including digital radiography.
Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology and Ultrasounds
Digital images, including ultrasounds, radiographs, MRIs and CT scans are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs and cats. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, joint problems, tumors, brain abnormalities and problems with the internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and bladder.
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, like the heart, lungs, spleen, liver and kidneys.
Diagnosing Your Pet’s Ailment or Injury
Our veterinary staff can rapidly diagnose your pet’s injury or condition via x-rays. Once Green Lawn Animal Clinic understands the depth of your pet’s illness or injury, a treatment plan will be developed in order to help your pet heal and restore your pet’s health. If a more in depth diagnosis is necessary, Dr. Gerber will discuss sending you to a specialist for imaging that may include CT, MRI or Ultrasounds. If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s health and his or her diagnosis, we would be happy to answer them and provide you with guidance in order to help make your pet comfortable during the healing process.
