Our veterinary hospital features a variety of technologies that help us diagnose and treat diseases and disorders in pets.
Diagnostic imaging uses electromagnetic radiation and other technologies to create detailed images of your pet's internal structures to help provide an accurate diagnosis.
At Animal Hospital of Clemmons, we offer digital x-rays and ultrasounds to determine what's happening inside your pet's body and provide efficient treatment.
Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
Digital x-rays are extremely detailed images of a patient's internal structures. Our x-ray technology produces high quality images quickly and safely, resulting in more accurate diagnosis and more efficient treatment.
Ultrasound uses sound waves transmitted through the body to create images of internal organs. It allows us to distinguish fluid from soft tissue masses or foreign bodies.
Ultrasound is very useful in the diagnosis of hemoabdomen and pericardial effusion (blood in the abdomen and around the heart).
When a pet has a tumor or ingests something it shouldn’t have, an ultrasound can also be helpful to locate the objects and characterize them.
The word LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation. Lasers generates a beam of light energy at a specific wavelength.
This wavelength is absorbed by the water in skin and other soft tissue, allowing us to make incisions in tissue by vaporizing the cells.
The extent to which the laser beam is absorbed into the tissue can be controlled by the surgeon, allowing for extreme precision.
This precision results in decreased pain, reduced bleeding, and a lower risk of infection compared to traditional surgical methods.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold lasers are a pain- and drug-free therapeutic treatment for inflammation and pain conditions in cats and dogs.
Cold laser therapy is non-surgical usually used in conjunction with other treatments.
