Radiology, Ultrasonography

Radiology

At Riverbend we have digital radiography equipment, which enables us to provide high quality diagnostic x-rays for your animals. In addition to standard diagnostic x-rays, we perform several types of contrast imaging, including intravenous pyelograms and myelograms.

We regularly consult with the board-certified radiologists at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals for assistance with challenging cases. Our digital equipment allows us to send images via e-mail and receive Cornell’s input promptly.

In addition to diagnostic radiography, we perform OFA screening of hips and elbows. The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals is an organization that evaluates x-rays for various congenital and developmental orthopedic disorders and is a useful tool for many breeders.

Ultrasonography

Riverbend has in-house ultrasound capabilities. We use our ultrasound to obtain urine samples, check for pregnancy, and do quick exams for bladder stones, pyometra, or tumors.

 

“No matter how long you have your pet, it is never long enough. A million thanks for all for the great care. You went above and beyond.”

Adele & George, Enfield

“You can tell they love animals and this isn’t just a job. They care about the pets and the owners, and it shows through their work. I got many calls from Dr. White to check up on my sick kitty and see how we were all doing.”

Christine, Hadley

“Barney could not have had better care or felt more love than he did with his visits to see his friends at Riverbend. He always got the royal treatment!”

Candy and Jim, Springfield

“From our first visit to the last, we had an overwhelming great experience. The front end staff is super knowledgeable and welcoming. Dr. Thomson and his team are wonderful. I just felt Charlie was in the best care possible!”

Erica, Springfield

“You helped me become strong; you helped me walk and you eased my pain and gave me so much love and attention and the BEST COOKIES EVER!”
