Diagnostics

 

Has your pet or one of your farm animals been acting unusual?  Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With animals, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal companions can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is able to develop and worsen.

In cases such as these, the team at Willow Bend Animal Clinic relies on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of the underlying condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our hospital features an on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your companion’s wellness care.

 

Advanced Imaging

In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why we also offer advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside an animal’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your animal friend has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Willow Bend Animal Clinic right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get them back on the path to good health again.

      Dr. Hunt saved my dog when vets in the emergency animal clinic in Memphis refused to treat her without $4000 up front for the surgery, X-ray and one night stay. He did a life saving surgery in the middle of the night with no hesitation. The bill was less than half of the other offices quote and that was after surgery, meds and 2 overnight stays. Very nice staff that kept me up to date on every step of my pups care!

      I live in Holly Springs, and have always appreciated the excellent care that my furbabies received at Willow Bend. I wish David Childers a happy semi-retirement and Dr. Thompson continued success!
