Could an undetected illness or injury be hindering your pet?
When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With our four-legged family members, things aren’t always as straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t alert us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are capable of hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
The diagnostic services at West Greenwich Animal Hospital enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our convenient in-house laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just a few minutes. This means we can establish a treatment plan before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab testing aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging tools like x-rays and ultrasound. This technology allows us to assess the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your four-legged friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact West Greenwich Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your pet back on the path to good health again.
