You know your cat better than anyone, but you may not recognize when they are feeling unwell. Cats are notorious for concealing pain and sickness. Typically, once they do show clinical signs, that means their condition has gotten worse. To help prevent your feline from developing a hard-to-treat illness, we recommend routine exams, laboratory testing, and using other diagnostic tools to monitor their health and screen for underlying disease. In addition to our in-house lab, our Woodbury, MN clinic also uses an advanced diagnostic laboratory, digital x-ray, and ultrasound to evaluate health and diagnose problems more accurately.
Woodbury, MN Feline Digital X-rays
Silvervine Cat Clinic’s digital radiography equipment is heads and tails above the rest. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, we can obtain high quality x-ray images while exposing your cat to lower levels of radiation than clinics using standard digital x-ray plates. X-ray images are very helpful for evaluating bones, joints, the heart, the lungs, and more. They play an important role in screening for cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and other illnesses.
