We harness the most effective technologies to diagnose and treat your pets at Hockessin Animal Hospital. Two high-tech procedures that help us get to the root of what’s causing your pet’s illness, pain, or discomfort are radiology and ultrasound.
We offer the latest in digital x-rays, which allows us to provide an accurate and swift diagnosis. Since we perform digital x-rays in-house, you’ll know the results within minutes, and we’ll send the x-ray images to your email address or you can have the option to take the digital file home with you.
We use this pain-free and non-invasive method to identify and assess the stage of many life-threatening diseases. Ultrasound is an exceptional modality for evaluating fluid-filled and soft tissue organs such as the spleen, bladder, liver and kidneys.
We analyze ultrasound images during the scan, and the results are available within just minutes after the ultrasound.
If your pet is visiting us for an ultrasound procedure because you were referred to us by another veterinary service, we’ll discuss the report with you. We’ll also send or fax the report to the referral veterinarian, and we’ll contact the referral veterinarian to discuss your results.
In addition to ultrasound and radiology, we can also execute fine needle aspirates and true-cut biopsies for diagnostic purposes, choosing either mild or no sedation for your pet.
No matter what kind of testing, procedure, or examination your pet requires, we guarantee they will feel comfortable, secure, and cared for throughout their time with us. Contact us here to schedule an appointment today.
