Although humans and animals are different in many ways, some advances in human medicine have also become very useful for veterinary patients. One of these advances—computed tomography (CT; formerly called CAT scanning)—has proven to be a powerful diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As a practice, one of our key goals is to offer state-of-the-art medicine and diagnostic testing; so we are pleased to offer CT as a means of providing a higher level of quality care for our patients.
Veterinary patients undergoing CT must be placed under general anesthesia or sedation; however, each pet is carefully monitored during and after the procedure to ensure a safe and complete recovery.
As we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer CT as one of our diagnostic capabilities.
