Our Veterinary Diagnostic Services
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing through our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, allowing our veterinarians to provide accurate diagnoses of medical issues.
- Radiography (digital X-rays)
Using a radiograph (digital X-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Digital X-rays are safe, painless and non-invasive. The process uses very low doses of radiation, which means even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs as well as diagnose conditions, including broken bones, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
The use of diagnostic imaging allows our team of veterinary professionals to create extremely detailed images of your pet's internal structures.
We use ultrasound imaging to produce images of the inside of the body by exposing a part of the body to high-frequency sound waves.
Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
Having this valuable technology available to our vets in our in-house lab means that your dog or cat's condition can be diagnosed quickly and treatment can start sooner.
- Cardiac workup
It is not uncommon to diagnose heart problems in both dogs and cats. If your pet is suspected of a heart condition or has one that requires further diagnostics, Rockland can provide your pet access to advanced board-certified cardiology services here in the familiar confines of our quiet office. Results of any cardiology services are usually available same-day. Cardiology services through Rockland save our clients money, time, and undue stress on pets.
Like humans, both dogs and cats can experience glaucoma, a condition caused by increased pressure inside the eyeball. Left untreated, glaucoma often leads to blindness. All Rockland veterinary hospitals are equipped with an instrument called a tonopen, a device that painlessly measures the pressure inside the eye and accurately diagnoses glaucoma. Tonometry at Rockland is readily accessible to any patient at any routine visit.
- ECG / EKG
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your pet may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG). This procedure is simple and quick to complete. It reveals information that could be crucial in your pet's diagnosis. In some cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to diagnose problems with the heart's chambers.
