Our animal companions often have injuries or illnesses that appear deceptively simple or may even be completely hidden from view. Especially at that time, diagnostic experience and technology are important to your pet. South Wilton Veterinary Group offers you both in our diagnostic imaging department.
Correct diagnosis requires expert interpretation of test results by our highly skilled professionals using the finest diagnostic technology available. From high-definition digital radiology to the advanced technology of ultrasound and endoscopy, your pet receives the ultimate in service. A board-certified internal medicine specialist examines our ultrasound images and radiographs for the most professional pet health care available.
Identifying the cause, providing appropriate treatment, offering the most qualified professionals, and extending unparalleled customer service to every pet owner—expect excellence from South Wilton Veterinary Group.
Veterinary radiology, or X-ray, is widely used for its speed and relatively low cost when diagnosing illness or injury in your pet. We also offer the latest in X-ray technology, digital X-rays, which produce images that are clearer and very detailed on a computer screen. These images can be sent anywhere in the world or put on a disc for your records. In addition, digital X-rays expose the animal to lower doses of radiation.
Ultrasounds are similar to X-rays but provide real-time evaluation of your pet's internal organs. With access to board-certified radiology and internal medicine specialists, we provide an extremely high level of advanced imaging services on-site, so you know that experts in the field are evaluating your pet.
Ultrasounds can locate foreign bodies in the intestines without costly and time-consuming procedures, leading to earlier intervention and surgical removal. An ultrasound examination is minimally invasive, providing a less stressful and more comfortable experience for your pet.
An endoscopy allows our veterinarians to look inside your pet using a series of small cameras attached to a flexible tube. This technology enables us to examine a body cavity or organ and diagnose a problem without invasive surgery. Endoscopies are less stressful than standard surgery and allow for a shorter recovery time for your pet.
This highly sophisticated technology allows for real-time images inside birds and other small exotic pets. Using this instrument, the surgeon can obtain biopsies and perform other procedures. Through a very small incision, the rigid storz video endoscopy also can be used in small cavities of dogs such as noses, throats, bladders, and joints (arthroscopy).
Our veterinary laboratory allows us to run a range of tests on-site, gaining results and beginning treatment without delay. In most cases, we are able to send your pet home with appropriate treatments that very same day.
Blood tests help us determine causes of illness accurately, safely, and quickly and let us monitor progress of medical treatments. They are also an integral part of wellness and pre-operative screening tests. View our blood work handout for a greater understanding of the tests we routinely perform on your pet.
