Adult dogs and cats may develop many different disease conditions. We use a combination of our physical exam, lab work, x-rays, and ultrasound to diagnose conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, cancer, and infectious diseases. We regularly collaborate with a board-certified veterinary radiologist for consultations and on-site ultrasounds, using more advanced equipment. One of the best aspects of Caring Hands Pet Clinic is the excellent diagnostic capabilities of our doctors who use experience and common sense to cut the time and cost of diagnosing problems.
Ever confused as to what those x-ray images are actually showing you? Check out this link below for an interactive way to see the main things we are looking for when we take x-rays. http://vetmed.illinois.edu/courses/imaging_anatomy/
