In an effort to provide your pet with superior medical care, we perform diagnostic imaging services to supplement diagnosis. Medical imaging employs the use of machinery to give photographic representation of abnormalities or injuries. In performing diagnostic imaging, our veterinarian can provide safe, accurate diagnosis and promptly treat the problem.
Reasons for diagnostic imaging:
Assess facial swelling and dental problems
Detect possible bladder infections
Determine the location of broken bones or bone fractures
Evaluate the status of a pet’s pregnancy
Help identify if a pet has heart disease
Help obtain a biopsy sample
Locate foreign bodies that a pet might have swallowed
Digital X-rays - Radiographs (X-rays) are usually the first test administered to evaluate your pet. Our office utilizes digital X-rays because they are more accurate and display a higher contrast. Because of their accuracy, technicians are able to take fewer images resulting in less pet discomfort. Digital X-rays also project less radiation than traditional X-rays, which allows your pet to avoid unnecessary exposure.
