Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique that allows us to look at organs in three dimensions. It also allows us to recover samples for testing from the organs of the abdomen or chest such as the liver, kidneys, spleen, or heart. Veterinary ultrasound is a painless, non-invasive, and safe tool that allows visualization of tissues that would not otherwise be possible. Ultrasound typically does not require sedation unless internal tissue samples are collected. If a biopsy is required, we are able to safely obtain those samples using the ultrasound as a guide. Our board certified radiologist is available by appointment only.
Our in-house laboratory and state-of-the-art digital radiology equipment allow us to quickly and thoroughly evaluate your pet's health and provide immediate diagnostic care during an exam. If your pet becomes ill or has been injured, our in-house diagnostic tools allow for faster treatment. We also utilize state-of-the-art outside reference laboratories to help provide the most thorough, accurate testing available. In-house laboratory tests we can perform include basic blood work, heartworm testing, feline leukemia and fiv testing, cytology (ear and skin), urinalysis, and fecal examinations.
Digital X-Rays and Advanced Diagnostic Equipment
Digital Radiology and Dental Digital Radiology
Shiloh Animal Hospital utilizes the most state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment so that we can provide a more thorough and accurate diagnosis of many medical conditions that your pet might be experiencing.
Accurate blood pressure monitoring assists in assessing your pet's condition during critical life-threatening times, anesthesia and shock, as well as giving us a baseline blood pressure reading in comprehensive physical exams.
We use ECG monitoring during surgery and dental procedures to provide the safest surgical procedures for your pet. Our system monitors blood pressure, respiration, heart activity, oxygen saturation, and temperature.
Digital radiographs, or x-rays, provide faster, clearer, and more enhanced images than traditional film x-ray. A digital x-ray of your pet's injury or area of concern is taken and developed in seconds, eliminating the need to wait for the x-rays to develop. Digital x-rays also help provide a better diagnosis for your pet. Like a digital photo, a radiograph can be manipulated after it is taken, allowing our team to view the image in ways that weren't possible with film x-ray. Digital x-rays help us to evaluate skeletal, cardiopulmonary, abdominal, reproductive, and urinary systems.
