To ensure a proper diagnosis, we will need to examine your pet. Medical assessment starts by looking at your pet’s eyes, ears, and skin, and checking his or her cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, and skeletal systems for any abnormalities.
When necessary, we will perform blood and/or urine tests to check your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system, including the thyroid and adrenal glands. Based on your pet’s condition, we may recommend further diagnostic tests, such as radiography (x-rays), ultrasound, or biopsy.
If you’re concerned that something may be wrong with your pet, please call us to schedule a medical assessment. Depending on the symptoms, we may ask you to bring in your pet right away.
