Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of a bi-annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to provide for your pet’s complete health care needs, including those to promote the general well-being of your pet, along with diagnostic and therapeutic services to address their medical needs.
Internal Medicine, Diagnostic & Therapeutic Services
When your pet is ill, you want to make sure your pet has access to advanced diagnostic and therapeutic treatment. These services are available through Central Veterinary Associates network of clinics and our Valley Stream hospital and emergency facility. Some of these services include Ultrasonography. Our state of the art ultrasound machine is operated by a skilled veterinarian who uses the equipment to aid in the diagnosis of medical conditions affecting your pet’s internal organs. Radiology is also used in diagnosing problems with internal organs, as well as in revealing fractures, arthritic conditions and problems with your pet’s spine. Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. All of our radiographs are read by board certified radiologist. Central Veterinary Associates provides Electrocardiography (ECG) services on site, along with consultations with cardiology specialists. We also perform Endoscopy services for cases that require visual inspection and biopsy of the esophagus, stomach, nasal passages, trachea, colon, and other organs.
