Early detection can mean a longer life for your pet
Veterinary diagnostic imaging creates composites of the internal body, and these are used to discover disease and injury.
Radiographs, or x-rays, are a diagnostic tool that allows us to see a snapshot of the internal organs. This is a painless procedure, typically done without sedation. We often use this tool to detect foreign body ingestion, urinary bladder stones, abdominal or chest tumors, heart size and shape, changes in the lungs that could indicate cancer or pneumonia, and many other disease processes. We can usually do radiographs during a “sick” office visit and have immediate results. At times, we will send the images to a board-certified radiologist for interpretation. Dental radiographs are also digital, but must be done under anesthesia.
