Could an unseen illness or injury be hindering your pet?
When humans get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With our animal family members, it’s not always this straightforward. Because pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to disguise the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Diagnostics enable the Animal Medical Center of Marquette team to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Quicker diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
Our in-house diagnostic laboratory makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This allows us to develop and implement a treatment plan faster – often before you and your pet even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t sufficient for achieving a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging tools, like x-rays and ultrasound. These technologies allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit unusual lately, don’t take chances. Contact Animal Medical Center of Marquette right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.
