Help Diagnose Certain Health Conditions and Diseases
Computed Tomography, commonly called CT scan, is a valuable technology that allows veterinary professionals to evaluate the inner workings of your pet. A veterinary CT scan uses X-rays and computer intelligence to create advanced imagery to help diagnose certain health conditions and diseases.
Alpine Veterinary Hospital encompasses the latest technology by offering pet CT scans to ensure high-quality and efficient care to our patients in Concord and surrounding areas.
Benefits of a Pet CT Scan
The advanced imagery of a dog or cat CT scan provides information that is essential to diagnose and evaluate a wide range of health conditions in pets, including:
- Lung disease or cancer
- Spinal or pelvic trauma
- Metastatic cancer
- Nasal cavity disease
- Elbow dysplasia
- Bone deformations
- Vascular abnormalities
Please note this is not a comprehensive list of conditions that benefit from CT scans. This innovative technology is vital in revealing otherwise hidden abnormalities or health threats. The information gathered by a cat or dog CT scan plays a pivotal role in creating a safe and effective treatment plan for your pet.
CT Scans for Pets: What to Expect
Your pet must undergo anesthesia for their CT scan to ensure they remain still to capture the required images. Our knowledgeable and caring staff will perform a complete blood profile on your pet to ensure they are healthy enough for anesthesia. Our surgical team will monitor your pet’s vital signs throughout the 30-60 minute procedure.
After your pet’s scan, our dedicated surgical staff will monitor your pet for a smooth and pain-free recovery. Once your pet is awake and can stand, they can go home. We will review all discharge instructions with you and answer any questions to ensure a stress-free and safe recovery for your pet at home.
