Radiographs can be taken immediately in hospital with our state of the art digital system. Benefits of digital radiographs include immediate results and reduced radiation exposure. Interpretation of the results is done in house by our doctors and can also be sent electronically for review by boarded veterinary radiologist.
Non-invasive and highly sensitive, in house ultrasound offers a rapid way to evaluate the chest, heart, abdominal organs, and tendons for signs of disease. This can also be used to confirm pregnancy and viable fetuses in dogs and cats. Our skilled doctors use the helpful tool on site to help make your pet’s diagnosis. Images can also be obtained by our certified sonographer and submitted to a boarded veterinary radiologist or cardiologist for evaluation.

Why have a dental cleaning on your pet?
1. 85% of all pets have periodontal disease* by the time they are 3 years of age.
2. Dental disease can result in bad breath, painful chewing & tooth loss!
3. Bacteria under the gum can travel to the heart, kidneys & liver.
*PERIODONTAL DISEASE – It starts when bacteria combines with food particles to form plaque on the teeth. Within days, minerals in the saliva bond with the plaque to form tarter, a hard substance that adheres to the teeth. The bacteria works their way under the gums and causes gingivitis – an infammation of the gums. Once under the gums, bacteria destroys the supporting tissue around the tooth, leading to tooth loss. This condition is known as periodontitis. Gingivitis and periodontitis make up the changes that are referred to as periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease can also travel into the bloodstream to infect the heart, kidneys, & liver.
