Below are some of the tests we recommend for dogs and cats:

  • Chemistry panels

Radiography and Ultrasound

We offer digital X-ray and pet ultrasound services in cases where a physical exam and lab testing are insufficient for us to diagnose your pet, or to monitor a chronic condition.

Both of these imaging methods are safe, non-invasive, and painless procedures. Radiography (X-ray) helps us detect and diagnose bone fractures, joint inflammation, and conditions of the heart and lungs. It can also capture images of some tumors. Ultrasound uses soundwaves to show us real-time moving images of the major organ systems, particularly the abdominal organs and heart.

With these tools at our disposal, our team at Best Friends Veterinary Hospital is equipped to provide your pet with the comprehensive, tailored treatment they deserve.
