The veterinarians at the Animal Hospital at the Crossing utilizes the most current, state of the art diagnostic equipment to assist us in diagnosing your pet, including:
X-ray is an imaging tool that provides a non-invasive method of examining your dog or cat’s internal organs and internal systems such as muscular-skeletal, cardiopulmonary (heart and lungs), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. The image quality of a digital x-ray is much higher than a film x-ray, and there is no time lost in processing the image. The digital images can be visualized within a few seconds following exposure, reducing the amount of time your dog or cat is away from you for the testing procedure and allowing us to diagnose and treat your pet rapidly. Digital radiology is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals to contaminate water systems and it decreases radiation exposure to your pet as images can be manipulated via a computer as opposed to having to de retakes.
Digital dental radiography allows us to visualize the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone. This allows us to diagnose bone loss or hidden disease that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may not have been visible during our thorough oral exam prior to the dental procedure.
Veterinary ultrasound is a painless, non-invasive tool that allows us to visualize internal organs that are not otherwise possible to examine. As the sound waves travel into the body they return images of the internal organs. As opposed to static radiographic images, ultrasounds return dynamic results in real time. This 3-dimensional image allows the trained veterinarian to see how the organs are moving or how blood is flowing through the dog or cat at the time of the procedure.
Our laboratory can provide our doctors rapid results of blood testing, fecal screenings, urinalysis, heartworm tests (dogs), leukemia/FIV tests (cats) pre-surgical blood chemistry profiles, among other tests. For more information about our laboratory, please see our laboratory services page.
Accurate blood pressure monitoring allows us to assess your pet’s condition while under anesthesia, experiencing shock, or in other critical situations. It is also used during routine check-ups to provide a baseline blood pressure reading.
We use a state of the art machine for monitoring your pet’s ECG, blood pressure, respiration, heart activity, oxygen saturation and temperature during all surgical procedures.
