Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology and Ultrasounds

Digital imaging, including ultrasound and radiographs,  are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in cats. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, joint problems, tumors, and problems with internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and bladder.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging involves using sound waves to create an image on a computer monitor. When our team passes the wand over an injured area of your pet, we are able to find otherwise hidden problems, like when your cat accidentally eats something that isn’t food, has a tumor or has problems with an internal organ, like the stomach, spleen, liver and pancreas. Ultrasound imaging is completely painless and does not have any side-effects


The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs, like the heart, lungs, spleen, liver and kidneys.

Diagnosing Your Pet’s Ailment or Injury

Once our veterinarian understands the depth of your cat’s illness or injury, a treatment plan will be developed in order to help your pet heal and restore their health. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your cat’s health and his or her diagnosis, we would be happy to answer them and provide you with guidance in order to help make them comfortable during the healing process.
