Diagnostic suite

Diagnostic suite

Our diagnostic suite is equipped with an x ray machine, ultrasound, endoscopes and digital otoscope.

  • Digital X ray: Radiography allows us to not only look at bones but also some of the soft tissues in an animal.
  • Ultrasound: this uses sound waves in order to generate an image and allows us to see within the abdomen and chest.
  • Endoscopy: this involves passing a small camera into a body cavity so that the vet can examine it more closely and if needed obtain samples. We have two flexible video endoscopes suitable for scoping the majority of patients.
