Medical Assessments For Your Pets

At Carlton Animal Hospital we believe in nothing but the utmost quality and treatment for your pets. We like to think of our patients as family and treat each and every one of them with the kind of gentle love and attention we would give to one of our own. That is why we offer a wide range of medical assessments & animal health services in the St. Catharines & Niagara region that not only improve the quality of your pets health, but also well-being.

A complete and thorough medical assessment not only addresses current symptoms or illness your pet may be suffering from, but also allows for early detection to medical issues that may lead to problems in the future. Our assessment begins with a meticulous physical examination that checks upon:

  • Ears
  • Eyes
  • Mouth
  • Skin
  • Skeletal System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Gastrointestinal System
  • Neurological System

We also look for abnormalities, and if required, blood tests can be taken to determine proper functioning of your pets:

  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Pancreas
  • Endocrine System
  • White/Red Blood Cells
  • Blood Sugar Levels
  • Electrolyte Levels

Depending on the current circumstances in regards to your pet’s health, other diagnostic tests can be taken, such as:

  • Ultrasound
  • Radiography (X-rays)
  • Endoscopy (internal scoping)
  • Surgery

Always remember, your pet is your responsibility. Maintaining your pet’s health will help not only their physical status, but emotional one as well.
