Diagnosis of diseases
The use of the most modern, highly informative diagnostic methods allows us to recognize animal diseases quickly and as accurately as possible.
For this we use:
Physical examination (clinical examination with thermometry, auscultation and palpation).
Laboratory studies (blood, urine, feces, smears, scrapings, cytodiagnostics, pathological analysis, etc.).
Instrumental methods (ultrasound, ECG, Holter monitoring, radiography, endoscopy, etc.).
In the treatment of cats, we use an integrated approach. Drug therapy can be carried out with the appointment of:
etiotropic drugs (antibiotics, antihistamines, antiparasitic drugs, bacteriophages);
drugs that support and restore the functions of internal organs and systems (cardiotonics, diuretics, laxative drugs, hepaprotectors, glucose, saline for intravenous fluids);
means of replacement therapy (hormones, enzymes, blood products).
In addition to pharmacotherapy to provide medical care, we use:
surgical treatment of wounds, dressing, plaster;
the castration of cats, the sterilization of cats;
cleaning teeth with an ultrasonic scaler, etc.
Do not postpone the visit to the vet – take care of the health of your animal in advance!
