Could an undetected illness or injury be plaguing your pet?
When humans get sick or hurt, we visit the doctor, explain our symptoms and receive the care we need. With pets, things aren’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they are unable let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are capable of hiding the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
The veterinary diagnostics services at Waccamaw Regional Veterinary Center enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can dramatically improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient for us to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have the results we need 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 tests aren’t enough to reach a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging tools, including x-rays and ultrasound. This innovative technology allows us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be reviewed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Waccamaw Regional Veterinary Center right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
