Could an illness or injury be troubling your pet?
When a person gets sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it isn’t always this straightforward. Because animals cannot speak, they aren’t able to tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals can mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
The diagnostic services at Arapahoe Animal Hospital enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Quicker diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our in-house diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in mere minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical checkup and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging, including x-rays and ultrasound. This technology allows us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
The diagnostic images we capture can then 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 risk it. Give Arapahoe Animal Hospital a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
