Digital X-ray examination
Digital X-ray examinations allow us to detect developmental joint defects, quickly diagnose fractures or unusual changes in the chest and abdominal cavity. We have a high-quality AGFA digitizer that shows even subtle changes in bone or soft tissue.
Contrast myelography allows the spinal cord to be imaged on an X-ray using a contrast agent injected into the spinal canal. With this imaging method, it is possible to pinpoint, for example, the site of spinal cord compression, and perform precisely targeted surgery.
A sonographic examination of the abdominal cavity can detect diseases of the liver, spleen or intestines. Ultrasound is also useful for diagnosing heart disease or detecting pregnancy and monitoring fetal development.
An endoscope allows us to examine the inside of the oral cavity, oesophagus, nose, larynx, trachea to detect foreign bodies, inflammation or damaged tissue. The removal of the foreign body is done with special instruments under the control of a camera.
Arthroscopy is used to examine joints using special instruments and a camera. It helps us find the changes that are causing the pet pain and are the cause of the lameness. Removal of damaged cartilage or bone growths is gentle, without a large surgical wound, and leads to pain relief.
