Why CT?

"Trying to diagnose and understand disease conditions without a CT is like trying to understand a hurricane without color doppler radar.  Its impossible to predict the hurricane's course by standing in the rain, just as its impossible to make a diagnosis by looking at a pet's skin", states Dr. Hurwitz. "The CT gives us a 3 dimensional image of the entire animal inside and out. CTs give us detailed images of tumors, ruptured discs, brain lesions, blood vessels, cysts, adrenal glands and internal abscesses.  Without our CT, these medical conditions can not be identified much less specifically located."   BVDH provides affordable, same and next day CTs to our clients and other referring veterinarians.  

The conditions/diseases we found using our CT:


  • Prostate Cancer

  • Bulging Discs

  • Strokes

  • Metastasized Tumors

  • Nasal Fungus

  • Brain lesions

  • Many, many more
