Skilled Veterinarian Offering Endoscopy Diagnostics
The use of pet ultrasound and X-ray is an excellent way to get down to the root of the problem with your cat or dog. Cardiac radiology often includes an EKG and aids in the discovery of common heart murmurs and any changes in the heart’s structure. Abdominal ultrasound and X-ray primarily examine the stomach and surrounding organs, such as the liver, pancreas, spleen and intestines. Some of the unexplained symptoms that these veterinary diagnostics can help with include:
- Blood in the urine or stool
- Weight loss
- Loss of appetite
- Straining to have a bowel movement
Pet endoscopy is generally the next diagnostic step and involves the careful insertion of a flexible tube with a video camera on the end. This allows our skilled vets to explore the esophagus, stomach and upper parts of the intestines and gives the information needed to diagnose any stricture, swelling or inflammation that other veterinary radiology might miss.
