Digital Radiography

Experience the precision of digital radiography (X-ray), providing detailed two-dimensional images of your pet’s interior. This technology is invaluable for evaluating various pet health conditions, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Foreign objects
  • Teeth
  • Heart
  • Lungs


Utilizing non-invasive electrocardiogram (EKG) diagnostics, our veterinary team measures your pet’s heart’s electrical impulses. This test aids in diagnosing ailments and monitoring medication effectiveness, particularly for health conditions such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes

An echocardiogram, designed specifically for heart evaluation, visualizes the functionality of the heart, blood vessels, and valves. This diagnostic technique is invaluable for assessing various pet health conditions, including:

  • Heart murmurs
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Cardiac performance
  • Blood clots
  • Tumors


Witness the power of veterinary ultrasound, offering a 3-dimensional moving image of your pet’s internal organs. This non-invasive diagnostic technique is ideal for evaluating many internal organs, including:

  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Spleen
  • Pancreas
  • Kidneys
  • Bladder
  • Eyes
  • Thyroid
  • Reproductive organs


Opt for minimally invasive diagnostics with endoscopy, using a camera for live imaging within specific areas of the body. This surgical tool is crucial for foreign body removal and biopsies, covering areas like:

  • Arthroscopy (joints)
  • Colonoscopy (large intestine, colon, and rectum)
  • Cystoscopy (bladder and urethra)
  • Gastroscopy (esophagus, stomach, and first part of the small intestine)
