Could a hidden illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, describe their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to conceal the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and treat health concerns in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can greatly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Harris 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 results we need in just minutes. This means we can establish an effective treatment plan before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical checkup and lab work aren’t enough to diagnose the problem, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to examine the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact the caring crew at Harris Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your four-legged friend back on the path to good health again.
