Since pets age at a much quicker rate than humans, these visits will become increasingly important in early detection of any changes in their health.
Our digital x-ray machine and quality ultrasound equipment provide fast, detailed imaging that can be lifesaving in an emergency. Digital x-rays are typically used to view bone fractures, joint issues, masses and more. The veterinarian may suggest radiographs for diagnostic purposes as well as pre/post-surgical exams. The benefit of digital x-rays is being able to quickly obtain imaging and enhance those images as needed. Digital x-ray technology also results in decreased radiation exposure to patients.
Many parts of a companion animal’s body can be examined through x-ray imaging. One of the most common exams performed on pets, however, is a chest (or thoracic) x-ray. This type of radiograph provides your vet with detailed images of the lungs, heart, and surrounding structures. X-rays are also commonly performed on an animal’s legs, paws, or tail to look for fractures.
There are many situations in which your pet may require radiology services. They might need an x-ray if they fall and injure themselves or if they swallow a foreign object that doesn’t want to pass on its own. Or they may need an ultrasound to examine soft tissue or even take a peek inside at developing puppies or kittens. No matter the reason, we’re here to provide in-house animal radiology services in Chino Valley to ensure quick and efficient diagnostic testing.
Our pet diagnostic imaging services in Prescott also include ultrasound. Ultrasound imaging is primarily used to view organs, soft tissue, foreign bodies and developing fetuses. It’s also a valued tool used to guide common veterinary procedures, such as biopsies. Together with our animal radiology services and a knowledgeable veterinarian, we can provide you with the important information needed for your pet’s treatment plan.
HIGH INTENSITY LASER THERAPY
We also offer general physical therapy, acupuncture, and high intensity laser therapy. We use the K-Laser to reduce inflammation and promote healing in wounds and soft tissue injuries. The K-Laser is safe and is used to improve circulation and reduce pain. Pets feel no pain during treatment, either, and the results are often astounding.
Our team is dedicated to helping your pet heal and return to their normal routine as quickly as possible, which is why we offer a wide variety of animal rehabilitation services. Canine hydrotherapy offers relief from chronic conditions, weight loss assistance and post-operative therapy. Our Tudor underwater treadmill is designed to handle dogs of all sizes, and it helps them exercise with minimal impact.
The Tudor underwater treadmill improves range of motion, respiratory function, and cardiovascular performance while aiding in pain management and reducing swelling and stiffness. It also increases muscle mass. We can operate the treadmill from a digital keypad with controls for water levels, inclines of up to six degrees and real time speed. This allows us to develop a comprehensive and safe hydrotherapy plan for your pet when you choose us for animal rehabilitation in Prescott Valley.
