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 cat has diabetes. She was seen last June at Critter Care, the sister hospital. They were going through some changes with staff, so Dr Taylor Francher took over KK’s care.
      We did everything by phone, I would do glucose curves once a week, call the numbers in to Creature Comforts, and Dr Francher would call me back and tell me what dose of insulin to give her.
      When it came time for KK’s check up, I decided to go to Creature Comforts so I could finally meet Dr Francher. She is even more amazing in person than she is on the phone.
      It’s a beautiful, clean, comfortable facility. All of the staff are very caring, and really make you feel like your pet matters!
      It’s definitely not as convenient for me to go to, but I can’t see going anywhere else now!

      I can't say enough good things about this facility. My fur face absolutely loves boarding here. I have a house full of "exotics". Dr Gorman is one of the best in the city for rat care. The ladies at the front desk are great and are very empathetic when it is time to help our loved ones over the rainbow bridge.
