X-rays, also known as radiographs, are a valuable diagnostic tool that allows us to visualize your pet’s internal structures in a non-invasive manner. Whether it’s evaluating bones for fractures, identifying foreign objects, or assessing the heart and lungs, X-rays provide crucial information to help our veterinarians make informed decisions about your pet’s care. Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray equipment ensures rapid results and superior image quality, enabling us to diagnose and treat your pet promptly.
Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that utilizes sound waves to create detailed images of your pet’s internal organs and soft tissues. This painless procedure is especially useful in evaluating abdominal organs like the liver, kidneys, spleen, and bladder. Additionally, it aids in diagnosing conditions related to the heart, detecting tumors, and assessing pregnancies. Our experienced veterinary team utilizes ultrasound to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your pet’s health and assist in planning the most appropriate treatment.
Timely and accurate laboratory results are vital in understanding your pet’s health condition. At Durango Animal Hospital, we have an in-house laboratory equipped with modern diagnostic equipment, allowing us to perform a wide range of tests with swift turnaround times. From blood work to urinalysis, fecal examinations, and more, our on-site laboratory helps expedite the diagnostic process, enabling us to provide immediate care when your pet needs it most.
Tonometry is a diagnostic procedure used to measure intraocular pressure within the eyes. It plays a critical role in diagnosing glaucoma, a potentially blinding condition in pets. By measuring the pressure, we can detect early signs of glaucoma and initiate appropriate treatment promptly. Our experienced veterinarians use tonometry to assess your pet’s ocular health and preserve their vision.
