Companion MRI is the only dedicated, full time Veterinary MRI imaging center located in West Hartford, Connecticut in Central Connecticut and Hartford County. We serve clients from New England and surrounding states including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.

Veterinary MRI Imaging for many common problems and symptoms has the same indications and diagnostic benefits as MRI scans for humans. For example, patients with undiagnosed pain, headaches, seizures, and negative diagnostic tests will most likely get an order for an MRI exam or scan. These are the same reasons to order an MRI for your clients’ pets with similar symptoms. An MRI can give you the information to properly diagnose the problem effectively in order to begin an immediate treatment plan with your client’s pets.
