Providing Better Care
Animals cannot provide much information when they are injured or sick. In the past, veterinarians had to just rely on observation, experience, and instincts to help them determine an animal health problem. Today, many technologies and tests are available that allow vets to diagnose illness and injuries more quickly and immediately begin life-saving treatment.
Technology Offers A Look Inside the Body
Since the 1940s, x-rays have helped veterinarians view hard structures, such as the bones, joints, and spine, inside an animal’s body, without having to do invasive, exploratory surgery. It has helped us diagnose injuries such as fractures, as well as diseases that affect these structures. More recently, ultrasound has provided a method of viewing abnormalities of the soft tissue inside an animal’s body.
Endoscopy is another technology that has helped veterinarians provide more focused care for animals. It uses a tiny camera at the end of a flexible tube to view the internal organs and tissues, to guide surgical procedures and necessary treatments.
What Pet Bloodwork Reveals
The blood that is drawn from your pet can reveal a wide range of data the vet can use for a proper diagnosis. These tests can detect inflammation and infection, anemia, clotting disorders, and problems in the immune system. They provide data regarding the function of the internal organs that can show problems with the heart, kidneys, liver, and endocrine system. These tests help the vet pinpoint the health issue, to provide the best form of treatment.
