What do you do when you’re not feeling well? Easy. You simply go to the doctor, explain your symptoms and receive the appropriate treatment. Unfortunately, managing the health of our animal companions isn’t always this straightforward.

Because our pets cannot speak, they can’t tell us what’s bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of an illness or injury, providing little indication of what may be ailing them. It’s up to us, as pet owners and veterinary professionals, to recognize the signs of a potential problem and address it in a timely manner.

Dogwood Animal Hospital utilizes a number of diagnostic tools, both routine and advanced, to help us diagnose and treat our patients in the most efficient and effective manner. We’re prepared to be your pet’s voice and help return them to good health again as soon as possible.

Our hospital is outfitted with the most up to date diagnostic equipment available, allowing us to run a broad range of tests right in-house. We also have a convenient on-site laboratory, providing for the fast and accurate retrieval of test results. This is especially important for illnesses and ailments for which a timely diagnosis is critical. In many cases, we are able to get answers and develop a treatment plan before you and your pet even leave the exam room.

When your best friend isn’t feeling well, it’s up to all of us to do what it takes to get to the bottom of the problem. The sooner we do, the better the chances of a positive outcome. The diagnostic services available at Dogwood Animal Hospital will help to stay on top of your pet’s health for optimum results.
