Diagnostics Take Determination
An essential part of caring for your pet in an emergency is the ability to properly diagnose his or her condition. Digital X-ray, ultrasound, in-house laboratory equipment, and advanced monitors are all important aspects of understanding your pet's emergency, managing his or her pain, and determining the best course of treatment.
At Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut, we offer a full range of diagnostic services, all performed in-house for immediate results. These tools give your vet a unique perspective on your pet's condition. They also help ensure that your pet's treatment will not interfere with any other chronic conditions or medications your pet may be taking.
Common diagnostic techniques include:
- Digital X-ray―This is a staple of veterinary care, most commonly used to diagnose conditions in bones, joints, and internal organs. We also offer telemedicine so that a specialist can view images and consult on your patient's care 24/7.
- Ultrasound―This allows your veterinarian to see real-time images of your pet's internal functions, including heartbeat and blood flow.
- In-house laboratory―Our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art Idexx in-house laboratory equipment to provide blood sample results in minutes.
In addition to the diagnostic services we provide, Animal Emergency Hospital of Central Connecticut is able to offer blood transfusions and oxygen therapy, both of which may save your pet's life.
You can also rest assured that we will only provide the tests necessary for treating your pet's emergency, and we will never perform any tests or provide any services without your consent.
Should you ever have any questions about the diagnostic services we provide, please don't hesitate to contact us.
