Compassionate Pet Preventative Care
Careful Diagnostic Testing
As experienced and caring veterinarians, we can only learn so much about your pet from a wellness exam.
We can only detect some diseases and issues from diagnostic tests such as pet X-rays and more. At Walhalla Veterinary Hospital in West Union, SC, we take every measure to ensure your cat or dog is healthy and can live a long, joyful life. It’s essential to understand what is going on beneath the surface, even if your pet looks or seems healthy.
We utilize radiographs, or X-rays, to find things that the eye cannot observe. When it comes to finding the correct treatment method for your pet, it is essential to know what is going on internally. A wellness exam may discover a lump or abnormality, but an X-ray can figure out why it’s there.
Knowing the shape, location, and size of the abnormality will help us figure out a faster way to eliminate it. X-rays are also valuable for finding foreign objects that your pet has ingested, so we can easily remove them or know if they will remove themselves. An X-ray can even discover gastrointestinal issues, heart and lung diseases, and bladder stones.
