This ultimately means faster treatment for your pets, as we can diagnose conditions quicker as we do not have to send off diagnostic tests and wait several days to get results back, we can do it all in-house!

Digital Radiographs

Establishing a fast diagnosis for your pet is critical in assessing their overall health and in allowing us to determine the appropriate course of action. To help with this, and to ultimately deliver fast care to your pets, we are fully equipped with digital radiography and dental digital radiograph. We also work closely with petrays consultants who staff board certified radiologists to review radiographs for medical cases.
