Ultrasound is a safe non- invasive way to assist in the diagnosis of many conditions. It is most useful for looking at soft tissue structures and organs such as the liver, kidney, bladder and heart. We also use ultrasound to diagnose pregnancies, perform echocardiography and assist with abdominal assessment.
Video endoscopy is another tool that we have access to. This allows us to look at parts of your pets body that are often otherwise difficult to see. It allows a minimally invasive approach to confirm diseases, remove foreign bodies and is another tool in imaging.
Electrocardiography is possible with our quality ultrasound. The ability to define and measure the anatomical structures within your pets heart is achieved with this machine. It helps us to make medical plans or diagnoses of otherwise difficult heart conditions.
Periodontal disease is the most common oral issue in dogs. It is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth, which triggers inflammation. Periodontitis can result in gum infections, bone loss and, if left untreated over time, the loss of teeth and other serious health problems.
A well balanced diet is essential for healthy growth and development in our pets. Nutrition helps keep our pets fit and healthy and reduces the risk of diseases such as skin complaints, stomach disorders, dental disease and weight problems. The right balance of nutrients is determined by the age, breed, physical condition and lifestyle of your pet.
