When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.
X-Rays For Pets
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 use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Interpretation of radiographs requires great skill on the part of the veterinarian.
We are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). This state-of-the-art 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.
While our team can evaluate your pet’s teeth by looking at the visible surface, a digital dental x-ray will allow our team to see more than what is just visible to the naked eye. We can see the bones, roots, and internal anatomy of your pet’s teeth.
Digital Dental X-Rays For Pets
While our team can evaluate your pet’s teeth by looking at the visible surface, a digital dental x-ray will allow our team to see more than what is just visible to the naked eye. We can see roots, bones and other problems, such as periodontal disease, tooth resorption, impacted teeth, abscessed teeth, oral tumors with bone involvement, and more! Having a digital dental x-ray will help us find problems (or potential problems) before they become a painful experience for your pet.
