Digital X Ray Diagnostics Photo

Diagnostic And Other Services

Digital Radiographs (x-rays) – Radiographs are a useful tool our Doctors use to examine your pet's internal organs, bones or joints and use to visualize any abnormalities. All of our x-rays are digital which provides us with high quality images that our Doctors can look at immediately after being taken. All x-rays are then reviewed by a board certified radiologist.

Abdominal Ultrasounds – Our in-house ultrasound machine is a diagnostic tool our Doctors use to further evaluate your pet’s organs. Ultrasounds can be used in conjunction with radiographs to provide a more detailed image of your pet’s organs and how they are functioning, or it can be used for standalone testing. The ultrasound machine is noninvasive, pain-free for your pet and is more often times than not, done while your pet is awake. Our Doctors typically recommend ultrasound exams in relation to liver, spleen, kidney or urinary tract abnormalities. We prefer to schedule this type of testing as a drop off appointment. Most of our ultrasound exams do not require sedation, but will likely require the hair to be clipped from the abdomen to enhance the images. All of our ultrasounds are reviewed by a board-certified radiologist.

In-House Laboratory Testing – We have a full functioning in-house laboratory. We can perform most bloodwork related tests including chemistry panels, heartworm tests, and specific bloodwork related to Thyroid monitoring, Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease and Diabetes.

Outside Laboratory Testing - We use a reputable outside laboratory for standard blood and urine testing results. Our laboratory typically provides results within 24 hours, depending on the type of testing performed. We also use our outside laboratory for more in-depth testing such as skin scraping results, cultures, biopsies and other cytological results.

"Everyone is very friendly when we arrive with our dogs. We have had a few emergencies with our dogs and I always feel very confident that my dogs' health is the highest priority. The follow up from the office when my dog was in the emergency room overnight was extremely appreciated. I felt that the practice cared just as much for my pets as I did. This type of attentiveness is exactly why I would never go to another practice."

"Everything is great. The staff (both drs & reception) are amazing which is why we keep coming back. Miriam is extremely knowledgable and helpful for whatever we need. Our pups love going to the vet!"

"Everyone is always so great towards me and Bella. I'm so happy I have such a great vet office, keep up the good work :)"

"The staff is always so friendly and you can tell that they love their jobs. Every pet is greeted with enthusiasm and compassion."

""Value" is a tough thing - veterinary care is expensive. The line-item receipt really helps me understand all of the components of a visit and a checkup. There's never getting around the 'gulp factor' when it's time to pay...but I feel that my pets are getting excellent, and not excessive, care."

"Your "front of the house" people are great. Miriam and the rest are efficient and courteous, and clearly know and love our dogs. Can't buy that."

"Dr. Schnoor has treated our dogs since weaning, 9 years ago. She is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. She helped save my female dog's life a few years ago, for which I will always be grateful. Dr. Ross has been a great addition. He is also conscientious and well informed. Human hospitals could learn a lesson."

"Dr. Ross is very thorough and professional. He takes time with clients to review pet status and healthcare planning. The support staff is great with the animals."

"I really appreciated the follow up email I received from the doctor asking if I had any additional questions"

"Something I really appreciated about this office is that the woman who made my reservation for Dylan actually remembered him (and loved him) from his stay while with Feline Friends. It's nice to know that the staff are not just veterinary professionals, but also animal lovers."
