The veterinary team at Davis Animal Hospital has the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat your pet’s health conditions. Our animal hospital employs a variety of diagnostic tools including digital x-rays, ultrasounds, electrocardiographs, and an on-site laboratory.


Veterinary Diagnostics

We strive to identify the underlying cause of your pet’s medical condition. This allows us to develop a targeted treatment plan. This method also ensures the best possible treatment outcome for your pet and results in lower costs for you. There are many additional advantages for your pet, including:

  • Faster recovery time
  • Less use of medication
  • Fewer treatments and trips to the vet

Pet X-Rays

Digital XraysDigital radiographs are a non-invasive imaging process that captures digital images of your pet’s internal organs, bones, and joints. The images are used to evaluate your pet’s condition. A low level of radiation is emitted, but it is considered safe for your pet. Digital radiographs are ideal for viewing:

  • Bladder and prostate
  • Bones and joints
  • Lungs and heart
  • Stomach, intestines, and colon
  • Mouth (teeth, jaw, and more)

Pet Ultrasound

Veterinary UltrasoundUltrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that provides a three-dimensional image of your pet’s internal organs. The moving images are displayed on a screen and can be digitally recorded. This method is often used to observe the following:

  • Heart and lung function (murmurs and blood flow)
  • Tumors
  • Liver, bladder, spleen, and kidneys
  • Pregnancy

Electrocardiography

  • Enlarged heart
  • Heart rhythm abnormalities

  • Urinalysis
  • Heartworm test
  • Fecal exam
  • Feline leukemia and AIDS test
