Diagnostic imaging

At Dr. Vet Animal Hospital, each consultation begins with a comprehensive clinical examination to assess your pet’s health. Our commitment to your pet’s well-being extends beyond basic examinations, as we are equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging technologies. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes Electrocardiograms, Endoscopy, Radiology (X-ray), Ultrasound (with Doppler capability), and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging).

Advanced Diagnostic Techniques


X-rays are crucial for examining bone structures, assessing heart and lung health, and providing an overview of the abdominal organs.


Ultrasound offers detailed images of organ structures, enabling us to detect subtle abnormalities and observe the function of organs in real-time.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging):

MRI provides unparalleled views of the brain, spinal cord, inner ear, and joints, offering insights into areas difficult to assess with other methods.

We select the most suitable diagnostic technique based on your pet’s specific condition, ensuring we gather comprehensive information while minimizing any discomfort.

When is Diagnostic Imaging Necessary?

Following a thorough examination, if further investigation is required, our team may recommend diagnostic imaging. This step is crucial for diagnosing conditions such as intestinal obstructions or foreign bodies, which might be causing symptoms like vomiting or illness. X-rays often serve as the first step, providing essential insights that guide our treatment plans.

Should an X-ray reveal something like an intestinal obstruction, an ultrasound may be recommended for a more detailed evaluation before considering surgery. This approach allows for a more accurate diagnosis and a clearer path forward.

In some cases, both X-rays and ultrasound are used together to provide a comprehensive diagnosis, helping us develop the most effective treatment plan for your pet.


Yes, after the imaging study, our veterinarians review the results and generate a detailed report. We offer the option to save images on a USB device or email them to your referring veterinarian. The images are securely stored for easy access during future visits.

To ensure high-quality images, sedation or anesthesia may be necessary for your pet to remain still. We will obtain your consent beforehand and ensure the procedure is safely conducted under the supervision of our experienced anesthesia team.
