Our Diagnostic Tools accommodating your pet's needs

Veterinary Diagnostic Tools in West Chester

Digital Monitoring

Digital monitoring devices such as EKG, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation ensure we have the safest anesthetic procedure possible when your pet is having surgery at Pfister Animal Hospital.  This equipment is required for all surgeries and is used in conjunction with our medical staff's monitoring skills.


Our ultrasound machine allows us to assess your pet beyond the level of x-rays.  We can evaluate your pet's internal organs, such as the heart, liver, and kidneys, to diagnose disease, tumors, and other conditions that may not be evident on a physical exam or found in other diagnostic modes. This image is of the inside of a heart in a pet that was diagnosed with a murmur.

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology is the most current method of taking and developing x-rays.  This technology allows for faster results while you wait.  We can also electronically send these images to specialists locally and out of the area for second opinions to assist in your pet's medical case.  

Dental Digital Radiology

Digital Dental radiology helps us diagnose dental disease under the gum line that can't be evaluated during a regular oral exam.  The tooth in the center of this image has a rounded area of bone loss, indicating tooth root abscess.  If untreated, this disease can affect the surrounding teeth or cause a jaw fracture.  This bone loss was not visible in the dog's mouth without using x-ray.


Tonopen tonometer allows us to measure the pressure of your pet's eyes to diagnose glaucoma or anterior uveitis.  This test takes a few minutes during a physical exam.
