Computerized tomography, or CT, is a process of taking X-rays from different angles. It obtains and displays a cross-section of the area of the body being scanned. Unlike the two-dimensional picture an X-ray captures, CT scans allow your veterinarian to see the complete bodily structure. This method of diagnostics can help with conditions suchs:
- Dental disease, such as abscess
- Head trauma
- Middle and inner ear disorders
- Orthopedic conditions, such as hip dysplasia and joint degeneration
- Brain or spinal conditions

Digital radiography (x-ray) captures black and white, two-dimensional images of the interior of your pet. It is used to evaluate a variety of pet health conditions such as:
- Broken bones
- Foreign objects
A veterinary ultrasound produces a 3-dimensional moving image of the interior of your pet. This is a noninvasive, painless, and radiation-free diagnostic method that is ideal for the evaluating many of your pet’s internal organs, such as:
- Reproductive organs
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic test. It is used to identify abnormalities by insertion of a camera that can view live images within specific areas of the body. Endoscopy is an important surgical tool used for foreign body removal and biopsies from many areas inside the body. We have the experience to perform a variety of endoscopic procedures including:
- Colonoscopy—large intestine, including colon and rectum
- Cystoscopy—bladder and urethra
- Gastroscopy—esophagus, stomach, and first part of small intestine
- Laparoscopy—abdominal organs
- Rhinoscopy—nose and nasal cavity
Our newly updated on-site laboratory provides rapid and accurate diagnostic evaluations of blood, urine, and fecal material. We can also perform allergy blood testing for both environmental and food allergies.
