Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs. Often considered more exact than radiographs, ultrasound provides a movie of what is happening inside your pet’s body.
Digital Radiography: Radiographs (X-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. X-rays are useful in examining your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An X-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet’s intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, X-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet and your veterinarian.
Laboratory services: Performing preventive medicine as well as diagnosing internal health issues requires the ability to perform a wide range of laboratory tests on blood, urine, and feces. Without timely access to precise laboratory test results it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis or assessment of your pet’s health.
At Alliance Animal Clinic we have a complete in-house laboratory capable of performing studies for infectious disease, parasites, blood chemistries, complete blood counts and urinalysis. In many cases, our sophisticated instruments and diagnostic capabilities allow us to receive results within minutes.
