Could your pet be suffering from an undetected illness or injury?
When people get sick or hurt, they call the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With animals, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our four-legged family members can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many pets are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
The on-site diagnostic laboratory at Santaluz Animal Care makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can establish a treatment strategy before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical checkup and lab work aren’t enough to diagnose the problem, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These innovative tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be assessed by our team in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your furry friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give Santaluz Animal Care a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your pet back on the path to good health again.
