RADIOLOGY AND ULTRASOUND

RADIOLOGY AND ULTRASOUND

Oak Elm Veterinary Hospital has advanced diagnostic tools that provide detailed information about your dog or cat’s health to treat his or her condition.

Radiology

With digital radiology, commonly called x-rays, our veterinarians are able to examine your pet’s internal organs and skeletal structure. With this valuable diagnostic tool, we  are able to examine cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. Our animal hospital uses digital radiology to assess your pet’s condition in greater detail compared to film radiology. Because digital x-rays have a higher image quality than film x-rays, we can provide you with more information and a more accurate diagnosis. 

In addition to providing fast and accurate results, digital radiology is safer for your pet because of less time exposed to harmful radiation. Digital x-rays are also safer for the environment since there are no chemicals to contaminate the local water systems.

Ultrasound

What is going on within your pet’s body? Ultrasound allows our veterinarians to look at the internal organs of your pet from as many different angles as needed.  It is non-invasive, pain-free, and safe. Real-time results are received by sound waves traveling into the body, returning 3D images of the organ systems. These high-definition images allow us to see how the organs are functioning and how the blood of your dog or cat is flowing during the time of the ultrasound. Ultrasound can also be used to monitor fetal development and screen for issues such as tumors, cysts, stones, and inflammation. Interpretations of the ultrasound and any abnormalities found by our veterinarians will lead to the most accurate diagnosis for your pet.

All the reviews mirror my thoughts of this establishment. It is outstanding. The doctor is a kind, helpful, compassionate, understanding, doctor, who went above and beyond to help my suffering dog. The staff was also kind, compassionate, helpful and friendly. I did not read the reviews before I went, but I can confirm, they are 100% accurate. I cannot thank this office enough for all that you did for my dog. It is a miracle that she is better and I am so grateful for all the efforts made to help her. Thank you so much.

The vet was so incredibly sweet. You can tell he really loves his job and cares. He was able to keep my dog relaxed, comfortable and not feel nervous. He was honest and upfront. He sent us home with medication that started to work immediately. I'm so happy this place was recommended to me and think this will be my new Dr for my old guy, hoping he gives us a few more good years.

I would like to single out Dr J. Iqbal. He is simply outstanding, going far beyond what you would normally expect from a service provider. If we had a vet in our family, we could not get more compassionate care than Lou got from Dr Iqbal. Everyone working in healthcare could learn from him! They have now become my primary vet.Highly recommend !
