Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer radiology services as a means of providing excellent care to our patients. Our veterinarians may recommend x-rays as a part of a diagnostic procedure if your pet is experiencing any health conditions or as preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination

A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernible from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones. Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation.

Radiographs (X-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. They're useful in examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An X-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures, X-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet and your veterinarian.

Digital radiographic images are far more detailed and offer a range of features that enhance our ability to make an accurate diagnosis. In addition, our digital radiography system allows us to transfer your pet's radiographs to a CD, making it easy for you to take them to a specialist if necessary.
