When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With animals, it’s not always this straightforward. Because they can’t speak, our pets can’t always alert us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
The veterinary diagnostic services at Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our on-site laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of diagnostic tests. In many cases, we can have the answers we need in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical examination and laboratory testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we rely on 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 any chances. Give the experience team at Happy Tails Veterinary Clinic a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
