How can you tell when your pet is sick or has been injured in some way? This is especially true for illnesses and injuries that can’t be easily detected on the surface of the skin. Add to this the fact that many animals can hide the signs and symptoms of illness or injury for weeks, months or even years, and we’ve got quite the mystery on our hands.

In these cases, we must rely on technology to help us uncover the truth about the health of our animal friends. With veterinary diagnostics, our doctors are able to examine your pet from the inside, identifying and diagnosing ailments so they can be treated in a timely manner. The sooner we can get to the bottom of what may be ailing your pet, the better the chances of a positive outcome.
