We are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally and manipulated easily through a computer program) routinely to help identify the cause of your pet’s condition. Digital x-ray exposes your pet to less radiation than traditional methods and allows the doctor a more thorough interpretation of the image. X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, and colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Due to the positioning needed to obtain some views, sedation may be needed for your pet or even a short-acting general anesthesia.
We may also use radiographs during a wellness evaluation to derive a baseline for healthy pets and to identify mild problems in order to treat or reverse them before they become serious.
If you have any questions about our radiology service or what to expect during your pet’s procedure, please don’t hesitate to ask.
