What to Expect at Your Pet’s Behavioral Consult

In our efforts to provide the most effective treatments, we have the capability to perform a variety of tests including:

  • Pre-anesthesia heart health screening
  • Congenital cardiac disease
  • Heart murmurs
  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Congestive heart failure

Diagnostic imaging

These digital images, once taken, are available immediately for viewing by our veterinary team and are easily transmitted your pet’s family veterinarian. Digital radiographs are ideal for viewing:

  • Bladder and prostate
  • Bones and joints
  • Lungs and heart
  • Stomach, intestines, and colon

Digital radiology provides valuable diagnostic information when trying to identify diseases and other health problems in their early stages.
