Veterinary Diagnostics

Electrocardiography Services

Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a noninvasive, simple, quick, painless procedure that is used to reflect underlying heart conditions by measuring the electrical impulses of the heart by positioning ECG’s leads (electrical sensing devices) on the body in standardized locations, provides information about the part of the heart that triggers each heartbeat, the nerve conduction of the heart, and the rhythm and rate of the heart. Also it can give us an idea if there is any cardiac arrhythmia or an increase in the heart size which is commonly seen in Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Valvular heart diseases, and Congestive heart failure.
 

Radiology Services

X-rays serve as a potent diagnostic tool for various health conditions. They aid in identifying bone fractures or bone cancer locations and extents, determining pregnancy stages and litter sizes, diagnosing stomach problems or gastrointestinal obstructions, detecting bladder stones and organ damage, tracking disease progression, and pinpointing tumors. Equipped with an on-site digital x-ray facility, we deliver high-quality radiographs to expedite diagnosis of numerous disorders.

Typically, x-rays do not necessitate sedation. However, if an animal’s injury is severe or if they remain too agitated for the procedure, the veterinarian may suggest sedation to facilitate swift completion of diagnostic tests. Our staff prioritize minimizing stress for the animal throughout the procedure. Subsequently, x-ray results are thoroughly reviewed with the owner in the exam room, accompanied by a comprehensive explanation of any findings.
