Diagnostics

Diagnostic procedures are highly diverse in modern veterinary medicine. They aid in diagnosing diseases and guide treatment.

Nothing can replace a thorough clinical examination, but different diagnostic procedures can complement the clinical findings to establish a diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis is of utmost importance for your animal to receive appropriate treatment. When your animal requires further diagnosis, at Animal Hospital Postojna we can use:

  • digital x-ray unit (diagnostic procedures for bone, lung, heart and other internal organ pathology),
  • digital dental x-ray unit (diagnostic procedures in dentistry),
  • ultrasound machine with colour Doppler (imaging of abdominal organs, heart, eyes, and (in selected cases) lungs; ultrasound-guided tissue-sampling procedures),
  • CT scanner (mostly used in oncology patients, but also in patients with diseases or trauma of the head and brain, inner ear, nasal cavity, spinal cord, lungs, bones and joints),
  • endoscopes (cameras to examine oesophagus, stomach, intestine, nasal cavity, trachea, bronchi; endoscopy-assisted (tissue) sampling procedures),
  • arthroscopes (cameras to examine interior of the joints),
  • blood sample analysers (haematology, biochemistry),
  • urine samples analysers,
  • microscope,
  • fast tests for several infectious diseases.

To provide the best possible diagnostic work-up for our patients, we collaborate with several national and international diagnostic laboratories. When clinically indicated, we will recommend the repetition of tests at specific intervals to monitor the treatment..
