Pet Diagnostics in Weddington
Cats and dogs tend to be very stoic and often do not show signs that something is wrong until it has become a true issue. When our pets are not acting like themselves, sometimes it can be difficult to determine the reason why. A physical examination performed by a veterinarian can help to identify if they are hurting, dehydrated, or showing symptoms of an underlying disease. Sometimes, our pets can be nervous and hide pain or may appear normal on physical examination even if they are not acting like their usual selves at home. This can make it challenging to know exactly what is causing your pet distress and how best to care for them.
When a physical exam doesn’t provide enough information, diagnostic tools help us determine the cause of your pets pain or discomfort. Our hospital is equipped with an in-house laboratory and digital radiology suite which allow us to get test results quickly so we can provide the best course of treatment for your pet. We are able to send lab samples out for further, specialized testing as needed.
