We use a computed radiography which offers a more detailed picture than conventional film radiography. The digital image is processed within seconds and can be further enhanced and adjusted after the image has been captured. We are one of the first in the region to use this.
Medical evidence shows computed radiography provides far greater diagnostic analysis capability than film based X-ray. Images can be quickly enhanced without costly retakes, allowing Dr. Gerds to get more information while taking fewer x-ray exposures. Less time means less stress for your pets.
With traditional film, poor exposure or improper chemical balance can render films unreadable. Techs must take another x-ray and develop more film. This causes more exposure for your pet.
Our radiographs submitted to the OFA follow the American Veterinary Medical Association recommendations for positioning. This view is accepted world wide for detection and assessment of hip joint irregularities and secondary arthritic hip joint changes.
OFA radiographs from Advanced Care Pet Hospital are submitted electronically along with and appropriate paper work completed. Computer images can be easily shared with clients at much less expense. We work with several breeders
With a sick patient, one can’t wait or make guess work. Advanced diagnostic protocol helps us quickly move from results which we can review with you, to preparing a treatment plan.
• Our diagnostic services provide quicker results with greater accuracy. On site diagnostics allow us to have accurate test results in 20 minutes instead of 24 hours.
• Quick diagnosis allows us to correctly we treat your pet sooner so they can recover faster.
• We combine advanced digital telemedicine with traditional in-house fecals, urinalysis and blood lab work, to develop a more complete picture of your pet's condition.
• Our ability to have results within minutes is especially valuable for pre-anesthetic testing if your pet is about to undergo surgery, as well as for evaluation of your pet if there is an emergency.
• Pre-anesthetic testing provides you with peace of mind and gives us important physiological information on your pet before we give anesthesia.
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical pet health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in small communities.
We can immediately email digital X-Rays and ultrasounds to Board Certified Radiologists for review.
Historically, local vets sent pet owners down to the University of Minnesota for this kind of work. We do that work right here, right now.
Results are typically received in 2 to 4 hours, less than it takes to drive to the University. We do it at a fraction of the cost. We provide this service to area vets on a referral basis.
When complicated or extensive blood work is necessary like allergy testing or Lyme levels, we overnight and receive web site results the next day.
