Radiology

Radiographs, commonly referred to as X-rays, are a diagnostic imaging tool used to diagnose diseases and conditions in the chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system. X-rays are considered a safe, non-invasive tool that does not cause changes to the disease process or discomfort to the animal. Sedation or anesthesia is sometimes recommended on a case-by-case basis depending on the pet.

An x-ray image can diagnose a variety of conditions in pets, including:

  • Gastrointestinal obstruction & urinary obstruction

  • Bone fractures and other trauma

  • Respiratory distress and pneumonia

  • Bloat

  • Pregnancy

  • Orthopedic conditions (hip dysplasia, arthritis, & more)

  • Dental Disease

  • Cancer

  • Many, many other conditions
