When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, however, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they cannot 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.
Cat & Dog Clinic of Bellevue’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the results we need in just a few minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your furry friend even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to examine the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Digital images can be evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your dog or cat has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your four-legged family member back on the path to good health again.
