Veterinary Imaging

Forney, Texas

Have you ever wondered how veterinarians determine what is going on inside your furry friend's body? Even if you see signs of illness, your pet cannot tell you what is wrong or what hurts. At Treasured Pets Veterinary Hospital, we offer a range of diagnostic imaging tools to evaluate your pet's concerns, allowing us to create precise, targeted treatment plans.

Diagnostic Imaging Tools at Treasured Pets Veterinary Hospital

Here is a look at the diagnostic imaging tools offered at Treasured Pets Veterinary Hospital:

Radiology: Digital x-ray technology offers a safe and non-invasive solution for capturing a wealth of diagnostic information without surgery or incisions. Depending on your pet's temperament and level of distress, we may recommend sedation for a safe and comfortable process.

At Treasured Pets Veterinary Hospital, we use advanced technology to capture high-quality images of your pet's bones and internal organs, allowing us to diagnose potential concerns with incredible precision. X-rays help us detect fractures, evaluate joint health, and diagnose bone disease. We can also get a closer look at your pet's heart, lungs, and other organs.

If your pet swallows a toy or item of clothing, x-rays can help locate the object and determine its size. They also allow us to monitor your pet's health, see how fractures are healing, and determine how well a treatment works over time.

Ultrasound Imaging: Ultrasound imaging provides a non-invasive option to evaluate your pet's internal structures. It uses sound waves to capture real-time images of organs, tissues, and blood flow. Just like with radiology, we may recommend sedation, depending on your pet’s temperament and unique needs.

At Treasured Pets Veterinary Hospital, we offer "fast-scanning" to obtain quick images of your pet's internal organs. This is particularly useful for capturing snapshots of organs in motion, such as the heart pumping or the kidneys working to filter waste.

Diagnostic ultrasound imaging allows us to evaluate your pet's soft tissues, including the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, to diagnose strains, sprains, tears, or liquid accumulation. We can also monitor pregnancy and evaluate the heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, and other internal organs. Ultrasounds help us identify tumors, cysts, gallstones, kidney stones, liver disease, and more without the need for invasive procedures.

Endoscopy: Endoscopy is a minimally invasive process that gives us a view of the inside of your pet's body. It involves inserting a long, flexible tube with a camera on its end into the stomach or colon through the mouth or rectum. Your pet may require sedation or general anesthesia to ensure a smooth and painless procedure.

Endoscopy is an exploratory diagnostic tool that helps us diagnose stomach ulcers, blockages, intestinal tumors, ingested foreign objects, and bleeding or inflammation of the stomach or intestines. It can also help remove ingested foreign bodies and extract tissue samples to perform biopsies.
