Radiographs, or x-rays, are images produced by passing electromagnetic waves through the body in order to distinguish differences in tissue formation. Radiographs can be used to examine internal body parts such as bones, intestines, lungs and the heart. Radiographs can be useful in the diagnosis of fractures, dislocations, arthritis and joint disease, intestinal issues, and heart and lung issues.
A series of dental x-rays is taken prior to performing a dental on your pet in order to assess the integrity of tooth roots. More than half of the tooth exists below the gum line, meaning that dental disease may not be detected by physical examination alone.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves (emitted in a range unable to be heard) to examine internal body parts such as the heart, bladder, kidneys, intestines, pancreas, and uterus. They are used in the diagnosis of internal disease as well as to aid urine sampling from the bladder.
Continuity of care is very important. Our veterinarians review patient medical records from all previous clinics prior to each appointment.
You will never feel rushed with VetPronto. We deliberately schedule plenty of time to perform a complete examination and discuss any findings.
We understand that amazing veterinary care doesn't start and end with a single appointment. Feel free to call or email anytime.
