Imagine how much easier it would be to manage our pets’ health if they were able to talk. That way, anytime they felt sick or had been injured in some way, they could simply tell us what’s wrong, show us where it hurts and explain exactly what symptoms they’re experiencing. Unfortunately, this isn’t possible, so it’s up to us – as caring pet owners and veterinary professionals – to become the voice of our companions, recognize the signs of a potential health problem, and take the appropriate measures to address that problem in a timely manner.

The problem is, when it comes to recognizing, identifying and diagnosing ailments in our animal companions, it’s not always as simple as just conducting a physical exam. In many cases, our doctors must find a way to look below the surface and learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body before we can reach a definitive diagnosis and develop an appropriate plan to treat the problem. Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital utilizes a broad spectrum of diagnostic tools to provide us with a more comprehensive assessment of your pet’s overall health so we can manage that health in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Our hospital is fully outfitted with the most cutting edge technology and modern diagnostic equipment available. Depending on the situation at hand, we may turn to laboratory testing, such as blood work, urinalysis and fecal testing, to help manage the ongoing health of our patients. Or, we may need to leverage more advanced techniques, such as digital radiology (x-ray) and ultrasound imaging. Most of our diagnostic services are performed on-site, allowing for faster and more accurate results. In many cases, we are able to have answers for you before you even leave the exam room.

If your pet seems to be under the weather, or you suspect they have become injured in some way, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can conduct a thorough diagnostic analysis and get to the bottom of the problem quickly. The sooner we are able to reach a diagnosis for your four-legged friend, the sooner we can have them back on the path to good health again.
