When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics allow us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Live Oak Veterinary Hospital’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the answers we need in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t sufficient for reaching a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Diagnostic images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Call Live Oak Veterinary Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
