- Ultrasonography: This is a non-invasive means of imaging the chest and/or abdominal cavities, which provides information complementary to that acquired through x-rays.
- Digital Radiography (x-rays): X-ray images acquired in a standard fashion, that can be digitally manipulated to improve visibility.
- Endoscopy: An anesthetic procedure in which rigid or flexible scopes are inserted into the nose, stomach, or intestines. This procedure is used most often to remove foreign objects and obtain samples in patients with chronic vomiting, diarrhea or nasal discharge.
- Laparoscopy: A minor operative procedure to view inside the abdominal cavity and obtain samples. Less invasive than surgery, laparoscopy is considered an alternative to surgery when the goal is solely to obtain samples.
- Nutritional Support: Our patients are often debilitated and in states of protein-calorie malnutrition. Placement of various kinds of feeding tubes is sometimes advised at the time of a diagnostic procedure to allow your pet to receive nutrition for a few weeks at home if he/she does not eat.
- 24-hour monitoring: All patients receive around-the clock monitoring by experienced doctors and clinical staff.
- CT/MRI scans: These are anesthetic procedures that provide exquisite detail and can sometimes give us important information that ultrasound and x-rays cannot.
