Could an undetected illness or injury be plaguing your pet?

When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, the solution isn’t always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them.

Furthermore, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness, allowing it time to develop and worsen.

The diagnostics at Hoschton Animal Hospital enable us to identify and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.


Our on-site diagnostic lab facilitates fast and efficient testing. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan ready before you and your pet even leave the exam room.


When a physical checkup and lab work aren’t sufficient to achieve a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These tools allow us to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.

Diagnostic images can be examined by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.

If your pet has been acting a bit out of sorts lately, don’t take chances. Contact Hoschton Animal Hospital right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your four-legged friend back on the path to good health again.
