Dermatology

Pets can have skin problems, too. Our team will work with you to understand your pet’s condition, what could be causing it, and how we can treat it. Many skin disorders are the result of allergies, but they can also be caused by autoimmune diseases and parasitic infestations. If your pet is constantly scratching at itchy skin or showing signs of hair loss, contact us so we can help.

Specialty Medicine

If your pet is in need of an ultrasound or EKG (echocardiogram), we can refer you to the appropriate specialists for a detailed evaluation. An ultrasound involves safely, non-invasively examining your pet’s internal organs. The ultrasound produces a 3D image of your pet in real time using sound waves. This allows the shape and size of the organs to be evaluated, aiding in the detection of masses and pregnancy, among other conditions. An EKG (echocardiogram) involves assessing heart health, also using ultrasound waves.

During your pet’s X-ray exam, he will be evaluated by a board-certified radiologist. X-rays allow for an internal examination of your pet for the detection of fractures, foreign bodies, and more. Because the X-ray images are produced digitally, they can be easily displayed and enhanced on a computer monitor. They can also be shared via email.

Cardiology

We can help to diagnose and treat various heart conditions in pets, including heart murmurs, feline hyperthyroidism, and systemic hypertension. These services are often combined with ultrasound diagnostic services.
