In veterinary medicine, radiography is a helpful diagnostic technique. We are happy to offer radiology services as a way of giving top-notch treatment to our customers as we consistently work to provide the finest caliber medicine and diagnostic tests.

An X-ray or radiograph is a type of image that looks inside the body and might show details that would not be visible from the outside. Nearly every organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones, can be examined with radiography.

Pet X-Ray

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses very low doses of radiation. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs.

The size of organs is important because certain medical conditions, such as kidney, heart, or liver disease, can cause these organs to shrink. Certain medical conditions, such as intestinal blockage or cancer, can alter or distort the shape and position of organs. Tumors can sometimes be detected using radiography, depending on their size and location. In addition, radiography can be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions.

Radiographs are a valuable tool that can assist us in making an accurate diagnosis for your pet. Our radiology department is staffed by compassionate, skilled professionals who will provide cutting-edge care with compassion and expertise.
