When people get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, discuss their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t always tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are good at hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and treat health concerns in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
The convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory at Village Vet of Urbana makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your best friend even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we rely on advanced imaging technology, such as x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Electronic images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact the experienced team at Village Vet of Urbana right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
