Diagnostic imaging is very important for our diagnosis and treatment of your pet.
We have digital radiography, which allows us to take high resolution x-ray that evaluate a wide range of problems, from broken bones to bladder stones, heart disease and intestinal obstruction. We are fortunate to have a veterinary surgeon with a certificate in Veterinary Radiology, one of only a few in the UK.
Ultrasound helps to fill in the gaps where x-rays are not so useful. It is excellent for looking at softer organs in the body, such as the liver and heart, as well as for pregnancy diagnosis. Our sophisticated ultrasound machine allows us to perform Doppler ultrasound and therefore advanced heart scans. Three of our veterinary surgeons have had extensive further training in ultrasonography.
We are really fortunate to have advanced imaging in the new Park Street extension. Our CT is the only fixed machine in the area and can be used for many different conditions, including joint disease and to assess cancer. The MRI machine is used for diagnosing ear disease and in the investigation of seizures. We are happy to perform CT and MRIs for referral patients as well as our own; if you are interested please seek a referral from your primary veterinary surgeon.
