At Three Trails Animal Hospital, we provide our clients with state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology. Digital radiography is helpful in diagnosing conditions for routine and emergency situations by allowing our trained veterinarians to see the lungs, heart, musculoskeletal system and other major organs.
Common conditions diagnosed using digital radiology include tumors, bone fractures, structural abnormalities, foreign body ingestion, and more.
Digital radiology takes less time than traditional film x-rays, which means your pet is exposed to less radiation and does not have to be still for very long.
Additional benefits of using digital radiology include:
These attributes of digital radiology allow our highly trained and experienced veterinarians to accurately diagnose and treat our patients, while giving your pet the quality of care they deserve.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce real-time videos and images of soft tissues and fluid-filled structures in the body, including internal organs and the abdominal region. This painless procedure allows veterinarians to identify health problems and potentially avoid the need for surgery.
Like digital radiology, the process of taking an ultrasound is safe and non-invasive. Common conditions that are diagnosed using ultrasound technology include pregnancy, abdominal issues, heart disease, foreign body ingestion, cancer, abdominal masses and intestinal disorders.
To confidently make an accurate diagnosis, we oftentimes use ultrasound imaging in combination with digital radiology.
The in-house laboratory at Three Trails Animal Hospital is an added benefit we provide to our clients. By testing samples at our own facility, we are able to expedite the diagnostic process so you can receive results as soon as possible.
Depending on the test, your pet’s results can often be viewed on the same day. The results of these tests allow our experienced veterinarians to establish a baseline of health, track health trends, and prevent disease during each stage of your pet’s life.
Laboratory tests and blood work frequently performed at Three Trails include:
Allergies, and other dermatological issues, can wreak havoc on your pet’s health and comfort. The clinical team at Three Trails Animal Hospital is dedicated to treating conditions affecting the coat, skin, feet, ears, and eyes. Without treatment, it is common for dermatological conditions to make your pet irritated, uncomfortable, and unhappy. Unfortunately, many dermatological and allergy conditions require commitment to long term treatment. That’s why we advocate on having a communicative relationship with your veterinarian about any skin conditions your pet may experience.
We understand suffering pets need relief fast. The first step to making a diagnosis is to perform a physical examination. Next, we may recommend a biopsy, allergy tests, blood tests, or a combination of tests. Our in-house laboratory helps us provide pet owners with fast results to begin treatment as soon as possible.
