Unveiling Your Pet’s Inner Health

Petzoic Vet Hospital’s state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging suites are equipped to unveil the hidden stories of your pet’s health. Our comprehensive range of imaging services ensures a thorough and accurate diagnosis and includes: .

X-rays, including contrast studies

CT scans

Ultrasound

Thermal imaging

Our skilled veterinarians will recommend the most appropriate imaging technique, carefully selected based on your pet’s clinical signs and individual condition, ensuring a personalized approach to their health and care.

X-rays (Radiographs)

X-rays offer a non-invasive glimpse into your pet’s internal structure, providing valuable information about bones, chest, and abdominal areas. This classic imaging technique is a cornerstone in diagnosing and monitoring various conditions, offering a clear picture of your pet’s health landscape.

Contrast Studies

Contrast studies enhance the detail and clarity of X-ray images, particularly for gastrointestinal and urinary systems. By introducing a contrast agent, we can more accurately assess the structure and function of these vital organs, ensuring a precise diagnosis and informed treatment plan.

CT Scans

Our advanced Canon CT scan technology, designed for humans but benefitting pets, offers a comprehensive view of your pet’s anatomy. With the option of contrast-enhanced scans, we can obtain detailed cross-sectional images, providing invaluable insights for complex diagnoses. CT scans are instrumental in exploring intricate issues and planning precise treatments.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce real-time images of your pet’s internal organs.

This safe and painless method not only provides detailed views of abdominal organs and pregnancy checks but is also crucial for heart assessments through echocardiograms. With the added capabilities of emergency scans of the chest (TFAST) and abdomen (AFAST), our ultrasound services offer comprehensive insights, aiding in rapid diagnosis and effective management of various conditions, including some that may be life-threatening.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging, or thermography, is a revolutionary tool that provides a non-invasive, pain-free way to examine your pet’s health. Our advanced thermal imaging technology uses the power of infrared cameras to detect subtle temperature variations in your pet’s body. These temperature changes can be early indicators of inflammation, injury, or disease.

Thermal imaging is a game-changer in veterinary care, allowing us to ‘see’ what’s beneath the surface without any discomfort to your pet. It’s particularly useful for:

Screening for Abnormalities

Regular thermal imaging can reveal early signs of issues before they become more serious, enabling proactive care.

Pinpointing Areas of Pain or Inflammation

Thermal imaging helps us identify areas of concern, guiding more targeted examinations or treatments.

Identifying Compensatory Issues

Thermal imaging allows us to see if your pet is compensating in areas other than the primary site of pain or injury, much like humans do. This insight enables us to address hidden areas of inflammation and discomfort, directing treatments like laser therapy to regions that might otherwise go unnoticed, ensuring a more comprehensive approach to your pet’s healing and comfort.

Monitoring Healing and Recovery

We can visually track how well an injury is healing or how a condition is responding to treatment, ensuring your pet is on the right path to wellness.

"It’s going to be hard to top the amazing care at Petzoic! The team is amazing, knowledgeable and when you are all finished, you are confident that your pet had the gold standard of Veterinary care. The prices are very reasonable. I was SHOCKED to find out that it is privately owned by a group of Calgary residents! It’s nice to support local instead of a huge corporation. Highly recommend this Hospital! OH, and check out Petfinity too! These folks have literally thought of everything! 5 Stars!"
