Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency soundwaves to produce a real-time moving image of your pet's internal organs. It allows us a look at your pet's internal organs, chest and abdomen without surgery or sedation. Ultrasound is used for a wide-range of diagnostic procedures. It is particularly useful in viewing your pet's abdominal organs and performing pregnancy evaluations. Ultrasound is also useful in evaluating heart functions and is used for bladder scans. In most cases, an ultrasound procedure is relatively brief and your pet is able to go home the very same day. Most importantly, though, an ultrasound helps us make an accurate diagnosis of your pet's condition and provides effective treatment recommendations.
Silverado Veterinary Hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine that produces excellent quality radiographs (x-rays). Radiographs are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical problems. Digital x-rays have become a powerful and useful tool. Images can now be taken digitally and displayed on a computer monitor. This means that we can quickly take highly detailed images and then manipulate them to gain a better view of your pet's bones and internal organs. The result is that diagnosing a very wide range of medical conditions is made faster and can be done far more accurately than ever before. Digital x-rays can be saved to a disk and given to you as part of your pet's home medical record. Images can also be quickly shared via email to specialists. Your pet's time on the x-ray table is reduced because fewer images need to be taken. Digital x-rays also eliminate the need to use toxic chemicals in the film development process, decreasing the risk of exposure to our staff and the environment.
Silverado Veterinary Hospital offers cold laser treament to its patients. Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. Cold laser therapy treats the surface of the skin and is used to help with wound healing, post-surgical pain, arthritis, and soft tissue injury. After our veterinarian has prescribed a treatment regimen, treatments are performed by a technician and owners remain with their pet. The laser is applied directly to the surface of the skin or held just above the skin if direct contact is too painful. Therapy usually needs multiple administrations within the first one to two weeks of treatment. After the initial set, treatments are spread progressively further apart until the maintenance level needed by your pet is reached.
Silverado Veterinary Hospital stocks an extensive inventory of medications that can be dispensed before you and your pet leave the hospital. This is an important aspect of veterinary medicine. As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we are able to ensure there is a direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness. We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets. Ensuring that you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice. Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call to reach our pharmacy line at extension 1400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
