The Veterinary Clinic, P.C. Diagnostic Services

Digital Radiography

Digital Radiography is an essential tool for diagnosing many ailments and illnesses in your pet. Radiographs, also known as X-rays, are images used to detect conditions such as broken bones, tumors, bladder stones and foreign bodies (a bone, toy or article of clothing) in your dog or cat's stomach. Digital radiographs also are useful for diagnosing heart and lung problems and can be used to evaluate cats and dogs for hip and elbow dysplasia. The Veterinary Clinic, P.C. uses the latest digital radiography technology as part of your pet's care. In more complicated cases, we consult with local veterinary radiography specialists, all in order to provide your pet with the best care and treatment possible.

The laboratory is staffed by experienced veterinary technicians capable of performing complete blood counts (CBC), blood chemistry profiles and other tests, all within a matter of minutes. Your dog or cat's results are interpreted quickly and accurately, allowing us to begin your pet's treatment immediately.

Video Otoscopy

An otoscope is a small, lighted instrument that allows us to see down into your pet's outer ear canal. Similar to an endoscope, a video otoscope is equipped with a small camera that transmits images from the ear canal to a video monitor, giving your veterinarian an up-close view of your pet's ear during ear exams, diagnostic procedures and irrigations. Many pets have ear problems and this investment has led to better diagnosis and treatment of these problems. We use the MedRX Vetscope for advanced veterinary otoscopy procedures.
