Our laboratory facilities host precise diagnostic equipment used in the preventative care and early detection.

Electrocardiology (ECG)

Effective heart disease treatment begins with early detection. Electrocardiology non-invasive, painless, and is the best tool to analyze your pet’s heart health.

An electrocardiography device detects minute electrical changes on the surface of your pet’s skin caused by heartbeat movement. Small electrodes called leads are covered in conducting gel and gently placed on the skin. The leads monitor heartbeat activity, recording irregularities if they are present.

Radiology

Veterinary diagnostic imaging is used to discover internal disease or injury. Red Hills Animal Hospital employs advanced imaging technologies operated by board-certified veterinary radiologists, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.

Radiographs, or x-rays, use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies and dental disease.

Our Radiology Services

  • Radiographs
  • Ultrasounds
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI)

Orthopedic radiographs and contrast studies require the patient remain completely still to work correctly, necessitating sedation in most cases. Some specialized procedures may require anesthesia. The duration of sedation or anesthesia is usually short and patient recovery is swift. A board-certified anesthesiologist oversees all procedures.
