Radiology (X-rays)

We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Interpretation of radiographs requires great skill on the part of the veterinarian.

  • X-Rays help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems, or provide a list of possible causes
  • X-Rays may be used during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious
  • X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate)
  • We offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). This technology allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Plus, it uses less radiation than traditional x-rays
  • To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia
  • If you have any questions about our radiology service or what to expect during your pet’s procedure, please don’t hesitate to ask
