Slide When performing a thorough exam on your pet, a routine physical is not always enough. To detect internal changes or run pre-surgical blood work, cat and dog imaging & diagnostics are the best option for evaluating the current state of your pet’s internal systems. Here in Fairfax, we offer a variety of tools and methods for assessing the condition of your pet’s blood, internal organs and bones, and obtaining results promptly and with great accuracy. These include x-ray, ultrasound, lab testing and more. Call us at (703) 273-2110 to make an appointment today! Example Title

Diagnostic Services

There are several different ways we can see what is going on inside your pet, either for routine wellness purposes or to identify the cause of their illness or injury. Our cat and dog imaging & diagnostic services include:

In-House Laboratory Testing
Running blood, fecal, and urine tests using our in-house laboratory allows us to obtain results much more quickly. This is especially crucial for situations in which time is of the essence and a pet is in urgent need of treatment. We can often get results from our in-house equipment within 15 minutes.

Digital X-Rays

With the aid of our digital X-ray technology, we can develop high-definition images of your pet’s bones and internal organs. Digital X-ray imaging allows us to detect:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone fractures
  • Foreign bodies

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Dental damage below the gum line
  • Tumors

Ultrasound
For a clearer look at your pet’s abdominal organs, we can utilize ultrasound. With ultrasound, sound wave echoes produce a real-time, 2-dimensional image of the organs, allowing us to observe their texture, shape, and blood supply. As with X-rays, ultrasound is completely painless and non-invasive.

Endoscopy
Endoscopy is a procedure in which a flexible tube with a video camera attached to the end can be used to examine hollow organs such as the esophagus and gastrointestinal tract to look for scarring, swelling, and inflammation. This service is especially useful for pets experiencing chronic vomiting and diarrhea.
