Diagnostics

Has your pet been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal companions can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, Creature Comforts Animal Hospital relies on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your loved one even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound/echocardiogram, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

 

If your furry, feathered or scaly family member has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

      My partner and I just started taking our fur family due to bad experiences elsewhere. We have been helped by 3 different vets and their respective nurses/assistants and I cannot say enough of their genuine kindness and concern for our animals. For many our dogs and cats are our “kids” and their health and wellness is paramount. Everyone here seems to understand that. They are patient and listen to you without interrupting and provide you with the information you need to care for you pet. I wish I could remember everyone’s name, because they all deserve recognition. We saw a lovely vet soon to go on maternity leave on October 27th for our new kittyand her nurse was unbelievable. We came back on the 28th with the other 2 kitties. The vet on duty, her nurse, and the tech were so kind with our feral kitty. Nearly made me cry. Came back today with my dog for a follow up on treatment from another vet. We saw Dr. Gorman and her nurse Jen and a trainee Giselle. They were phenomenal! Please could you check who was working on all these days? I would like all of them to be recognized for their kindness! Thank you so much!
