Could an unknown illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms, and receive the appropriate care. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t always let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are great at disguising the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely and effective manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Nacogdoches Animal Hospital’s on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests right in-house. 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 enough to reach a definitive diagnosis, we leverage 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.
Digital images can be reviewed 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. Contact Nacogdoches Animal 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.
