Once your pet's laboratory results are in hand, our veterinarians and technicians can begin your pet's treatment immediately.
We also utilize one of the nation's largest reference laboratory in order to provide a full list of extensive laboratory testing.
Radiology is an essential diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. Radiographs (x-rays) are used for assessing pets with a wide variety of ailments. X-rays are used to diagnose many conditions, including broken bones, tumors, bladder stones and locating foreign bodies (a bone, toy or article of clothing) in your pet's stomach. Radiographs also are useful for diagnosing heart and lung problems and can be used to evaluate dogs for hip and elbow dysplasia. Special procedures (such as barium series) help evaluate your pet's gastrointestinal tract for mobility problems and obstructions.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs. This allows us to biopsy intra-abdominal structures without surgery. Pregnancy exams are also available. We have one of the newest, more advanced ultrasound units available.
We are proud at Citrus Veterinary Clinic to have a complete range of diagnostic tools on site to serve you better. Accurately diagnosing pet health problems allows us to begin treatment quickly, which offers you confidence and a greater peace of mind knowing we're doing everything possible to treat your special friend.
