These days, pets are commonly referred to as furbabies and are considered as much a part of the family as their human counterparts. Here, our Murfreesboro vets explain more about veterinary medical advances and how these advances help us to care for your pet.
Advanced Treatment and Diagnostic Care
Pet owners are demanding the same level of care for their pets as they do for themselves. At Brogli, Lane, Weaver & Alexander Animal Hospital we are constantly striving to provide the highest level of care for your pets.
With that said, we wanted to take this opportunity to recap some of the most advanced services available in veterinary medicine that we are proud to provide your pet right here at BLWA..
While x-rays provide us with good images of bone, an ultrasound is the best way to identify problems with internal organs and soft tissue. Providing this service in-house enables us to get you immediate results and provide treatment without delays caused by referring patients out to other hospitals.
Dental x-rays show us what the naked eye cannot see and tell us what our pets can’t say. They allow us to identify and treat disease under the gum line that cause a lot of discomfort. Once these problems are identified we can treat them and prevent years of pain and health problems.
Cold Laser Therapy
This noninvasive procedure treats pain associated with arthritis, injuries, surgery, and other conditions. It can also be used to treat wounds and aid in the healing process. The laser works by stimulating cell growth and blood circulation, which in turn, works to heal the affected areas.
One benefit of laser surgery is a faster recovery time after your pet’s procedure. The laser works by sealing nerves, soft tissue and blood vessels as it cuts. This makes the healing process faster and less painful for your pet.
Digital imaging allows our veterinarians to view your pet’s x-rays immediately and with better image clarity than a regular x-ray. We are able to quickly identify tumors, bladder stones, bone fractures, and foreign objects. In turn, this allows us to maximize your pet's comfort by diagnosing and treating your pet without delay.
Our state-of-the-art lab equipment allows us to provide the results of your pet’s bloodwork within a matter of minutes. Routine bloodwork is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. By detecting disease early we can often intervene using special diets or medications to slow or halt disease progression.
