Diagnostics

Imagine how great it would be if our pets could speak. That way, whenever they weren’t feeling well or had been injured in some way, they could simply tell us what was bothering them or point to where it hurt. Unfortunately, our animal companions cannot communicate in this way, making managing their health quite a challenge.

When a physical exam simply isn’t enough to diagnose the problem, we turn to veterinary diagnostics to help us get the answers we need. These tools provide a glimpse inside your pet’s body, which can help us to identify, diagnose and treat medical problems in a timely manner. Whether it’s a simple blood test, or more advanced imaging like an x-ray or ultrasound, we’ve got the equipment and experience to get to the bottom of whatever may be ailing your animal friend. A faster diagnosis means a quicker, more effective treatment plan which means a better outcome for your loved one.

Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills offers both routine and advanced diagnostic care services. Our hospital is outfitted with modern equipment which allows us to run a wide variety of tests right in-house, while you and your pet wait in the exam room. This is especially beneficial for those illnesses and injuries for which a timely diagnosis and treatment plan are critical. Rest assured that our focus is always on getting the answers we need as quickly and accurately as we can for you and your companion.

Our pets don’t have the ability to speak, so it’s up to us to become a voice for them. Veterinary diagnostics allow us to do just that, managing their health in the most effective and efficient way possible. If your loved one seems to be a bit under the weather and you suspect an illness or injury may be to blame, give us a call right away. We’ll do everything within our power to get that special guy or gal back on his or her feet again as soon as possible.

      We have taken all three of our dogs to Dr. Cahoon and Dr. McKerney over the past 6 years - they have kept them healthy and happy through all manner of health conditions and injuries and our 15 year golden mix would not be able to walk without the acupuncture and laser treatments they provide. They love our dogs and always spend time with us to explain what is going on. Highly recommend!

      We have been taking our two dogs here for over 10 years. Dr. Cahoon always makes sure to explain everything and find options for our dog who has had a lot of health problems. Even though we live farther away now we still drive just to see them.

      Dr. McKerney has been treating my cockapoo, Waldo, with accutpunture for a couple of months now due to a spinal injry that resulted in paralization in the hind area. Waldo can now walk, a little wobbly. When recommended to me we did not know if Waldo would ever be able to walk again. Dr, McKerney is worth our drive (50miles) and time. She was also very thorough in reviewing all of Waldo's medical records prior to seeing him. Waldo is never expereinces any anxiety about going - that says a lot!

      The staff is wonderful with my baby Gizmo. He can be a challenge at the vet but they take good care of him. I really feel like they care for the animals they see there. It means a lot to me to not feel like my cat is just a # but seen as a member of my family.
