Animal Radiology Clinic Heights
Urban Animal offers ultrasound and digital x-ray to better visualize structures that aren’t always apparent. Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to quickly obtain images of the chest, abdomen and the organs inside them. It also helps us examine whether bony abnormalities are present.
Our radiographs (x-rays) are sent to boarded radiologists just the way they are when we get imaged ourselves. We want the best set of eyes looking at your urban companion so we can make the most informed recommendations.
Additionally, we can often offer same-day ultrasounds of the abdomen and/or heart (echocardiograms) when specific systems are in question. Sometimes the answer is more than skin deep. Urban Animal gives you a complete and in depth picture.
Veterinary Surgeon Houston Heights
Whether elective surgery, biopsy, mass removal or unexpected, our veterinary surgeon helps you keep your cat or dog healthy. Our surgery suite has a heated surgery table to keep your pet warm during a procedure. We have electrocautery instruments, if needed, to make procedures go faster and minimize blood loss.
Your pet is monitored closely during all procedures including blood pressure, oxygen carrying capacity, heart rate, respiratory rate along with carbon dioxide buildup. Our suite and surgery protocols are similar to what’s used in human medicine, so we can ensure the best outcome for your companion animal.
Surgery services include:
Elective spays and neuters
