Diagnostic Imaging & Testing

Diagnostic Imaging

Brentwood Country Animal Hospital uses digital radiography to provide fast, high-quality x-rays that can aid in the diagnosis of many diseases, including respiratory, cardiac and GI issues, as well as broken bones or torn ligaments. We also refer radiographs to a boarded radiologist for consultation, when indicated.

We take dental x-rays for all patients who undergo a professional dental cleaning, in order to get a full picture of their oral health and to help diagnose problems that may exist below the gum line.

We also offer in-house ultrasound for patients who require more extensive diagnostics (e.g., real-time cardiac imaging or advanced soft tissue imaging). Scheduling is done by appointment, as needed.
