Our Diagnostic Services
With our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab we are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing to allow our vets to provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate your pet's bones and organs as well as diagnose conditions including broken bones, chronic arthritis, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
Using ultrasound imaging procedures, we expose parts of your body to high-frequency sound waves in order to produce images of the inside of your body.
Since we are able to capture ultrasound images in real-time, we are able to see the movements and structures of your pet's internal organs, as well as the blood flowing through their blood vessels.
Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner.
- ECG / EKG
If your veterinarians have performed a physical examination and suspect that your pet may be experiencing a heart disorder, we will usually take both chest x-rays and an electrocardiogram (also known as ECG or EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your pet's diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
- Digital Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-Rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-Rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
With digital X-Rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Riverside County vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
