When humans get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it isn’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t always alert us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are good at hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
The veterinary diagnostic services at River Ridge Pet Clinic 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.
When a physical exam and laboratory work aren’t enough to reach a definitive diagnosis, we rely on imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These advanced tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
With our dental services, 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. Give River Ridge Pet Clinic 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.
