If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet’s overall health before symptoms are noticeable.

Dermatology

Skin problems are common in dogs and cats and can be caused by hormonal disorders, allergies, infections or parasites such as fleas and mites. Most allergies appear after the pet is six months of age, with the majority of affected dogs over age of  two. The most common symptom associated with allergies is localized or generalized itching of the skin. Other symptoms include respiratory distress (coughing, sneezing and wheezing) or digestive problems, which cause vomiting or diarrhea. These issues can be particularly difficult to treat and should be addressed promptly.

It is important to be able to identify the first signs and symptoms of allergies and dermatological conditions including:

  • Scratching, licking, chewing or biting the skin, feet and ears

  • Red, raised, scaly areas on the skin

  • Bumps, crusts or pus-filled vesicles on the skin

  • Increased skin pigmentation

  • Thickened skin

  • Loss of hair

  • Head shaking

We can diagnose a skin problem by simply examining your pet. However, many dermatologic diseases or conditions require additional tests to ensure a correct diagnosis. Depending on your pet’s symptoms and the results of his or her physical exam, we may run blood work or perform a urinalysis, skin scraping, or biopsies. If left untreated, skin conditions can become serious medical concerns.

Digital Radiographs

Xrays, are one of the most common and useful diagnostic tools in medicine. At GX vet clinic we use digital X-ray technology to examine your pet’s bones, chest (lung and heart), abdomen, oral cavity and other areas, and for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. If we suspect your pet has a fractured bone, has swallowed a foreign object, or is suffering from a heart problem, an X-ray can help us for diagnosis.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a painless, non-invasive and safe procedure used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs. Using sound waves, ultrasound allows us to visualize objects that cannot be detected by X-rays alone.
