Radiology is a very important diagnostic tool to help our doctors with your pet's needs. We have digital imaging technology in order to provide efficient and accurate images for chest, abdominal, and orthopedic evaluations. If your pet becomes ill, digital radiography allows us to obtain the highest quality pictures in the shortest amount of time. This leads to a quicker diagnosis and treatment plan for your pet. Our doctors will be able to review these images with you in the hospital. When needed, we also have the capability of having all radiographic studies sent electronically to a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist for same-day consultation.
Cold Light Laser Therapy:
Cold light laser therapy is the use of an intense beam of laser light directed into tissues to reduce pain, increase blood flow, decrease inflammation and promote healing. This allows us to provide therapy to deep tissues around the hips, shoulders, knees and other various parts of the body to make your pet more comfortable. No matter what kind of pet you have, laser therapy can be part or the solution to help ease your pet's pain. Safe and effective, this powerful modality provides increased mobility, increased wound healing, bactericidal activity and post surgery rehabilitation.

Dental Cleanings and X-Ray:
Regular dental cleanings for your pet are a necessary part of the overall wellness and long term health of that pet. We recommend yearly exams by our veterinarians in order for your pet's teeth to be evaluated. A dental cleaning may be recommended at that time. We believe that dental x-rays are the most important part of that dental cleaning procedure. We are able to get a digital picture of each tooth above and below the gum line so that we are able to identify any problems or pain that may be going on in your pet's mouth. After the x-rays are taken, one of our technicians will call you to go over the results and convey any recommendations made by the doctor. The dental procedure will be finished and your pet will go home the same day with a clean and healthy smile!
