Diagnostics, such as blood tests, urinalysis, and X-rays, allow us to go below the skin’s surface to identify and diagnose possible health conditions and efficiently develop and administer the appropriate course of treatment.
Codornices Veterinary Clinic offers a range of comprehensive diagnostic services, including digital dental X-rays, full digital body X-rays, ultrasound, in-house laboratory, and microscopic assessment of skin problems and lumps, which help us to better care for and treat our patients. We also utilize a select group of off-site labs for additional advanced testing.
What Is Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging For Felines?
Veterinary diagnostic imaging includes radiographs (X-rays), ultrasound, MRIs and CT scans, all of which are used as diagnostic tools to collect information about your cat's health. The vast majority of imaging is non-invasive and completely painless. However, some imaging may require sedation or even anesthesia because the cat must be kept still to allow for adequate images to be produced. Veterinarians use these images to collect information on your cat to help them to make a medical and sometimes surgical plan.
