If your pet is sick or injured, you don’t have to wait for diagnostic care. Call Eagle Spirit Veterinary Practice to have our mobile veterinary practice arrive at your door to provide the care your pet needs. Eagle Spirit Veterinary Practice has an entire diagnostic suite of equipment to serve pet owners in Greeley, CO and the surrounding area, including Loveland and Windsor. Mobile veterinary care allows your pet to receive the same treatments and services offered by a traditional veterinary clinic, but without the added stress of taking your pet to the hospital. Here are just a few of the services offered by Eagle Spirit Veterinary Practice:
An X-ray of your pet’s skeletal system can identify a number of different health problems, including:
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Bone fractures and dysplasia
- Cardiac or respiratory illnesses
- Changes in abdominal organs such as the spleen or liver
Similar to an X-ray, an ultrasound allows the veterinarian to view images of your pet’s internal organs in a non-invasive manner. While X-rays allow the vet to view the size and shape of organs, an ultrasound can detect much smaller and different types of problems. For example, an ultrasound can locate cysts or tumors inside an organ, fluid accumulations or calcifications such as urinary stones.
An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a diagnostic test that measures the electrical activity in your pet’s heart. The EKG is a screening test that can diagnose several different heart conditions, such as an irregular heart rate or electrical rhythm.
Blood Work & Blood Pressure
Dr. Ponder can draw a sample of your pet’s blood to do a Complete Blood Count (CBC) and blood chemistry analysis. This test can identify many different health problems that might not be detected in a regular checkup. Blood work is often done to identify more complex problems with a pet’s health. Blood testing can check things like your pet’s immune system, cholesterol, glucose and more. A simple non-invasive blood pressure test can also be done to test whether your pet’s blood pressure is at a healthy level for his or her age.
Eye Exams (Tonometry)
Eagle Spirit Veterinary Practice can also examine your pet’s eyes and eye pressure using a tonometry test. This is a pressure test on the eye that is useful in diagnosing glaucoma in older pets. Low intraocular pressure can also mean that a pet has inflammation of the eyes.
You can receive the same level of diagnostic care for your pet right at home home with Eagle Spirit Veterinary Practice. Contact us today to schedule a visit from our mobile vet practice.
