We offer digital radiographs (X-rays) as a diagnostic tool. These images allow our veterinarians to view potential problems inside your pet that may be difficult to diagnose otherwise. These images help determine a diagnosis for bone abnormalities, ligament or tendon damage, internal masses, heart conditions, and more. There is minimal risk for your pet during the process, though sedation may be required as the pet may be uncomfortable and unable to maintain the necessary positions for clear imaging. Your veterinarian will make the recommendations for all testing, imaging, and precautions.
We are now able to offer dental radiographs as well. These images allow the veterinarian to see any issues below the surface of your pet's teeth, gums, and jaw. They can also expose abnormalities such as abscesses, tumors, or damage to the roots that would otherwise go unnoticed. Post-dentistry radiographs allow the veterinarian to determine if any tooth fragments remain from an extraction site. This helps to alleviate secondary visits and avoids having your pet undergo anesthesia more than once.
