Diagnostics

Is your pet feeling a bit under the weather lately but you’re not sure why?

Knowing there’s something wrong with our animal companions, but not understanding what the actual problem is can be frustrating. If only we could give them a voice so they could tell us what was bothering them. With veterinary diagnostics, we can do just that. By using tools like blood work and x-rays, we can learn what’s happening within your pet’s body. From there, we can quickly diagnose and treat the problem at hand.

Northbrook Animal Hospital offers routine and advanced diagnostic services to handle all of your pet’s healthcare needs. Our main diagnostic capabilities are as follows:

Digital Radiology (X-Ray)

In many instances, external exams simply aren’t enough for us to understand what is ailing your loved one. For instance, fractures and other internal injuries are nearly impossible to diagnose from the outside. Northbrook Animal Hospital offers digital radiology (x-ray) to help us handle cases like this. With x-rays, we can capture images of the skeletal system and internal organs to diagnose or assess the status of an injury or illness.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound technology uses sound waves to produce real-time images of the inner-workings of your pet’s body. We can use this imaging technique to evaluate the organs, joints or tissue and identify any abnormalities that may require further attention. Ultrasound imaging is ideal because, unlike x-ray, it uses no radiation. Northbrook Animal Hospital offers ultrasound as part of our comprehensive diagnostic services.

If your pet isn’t feeling well and you’re concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame, don’t wait another moment. Give us a call today to schedule a full evaluation.
