Occasionally there will be times when your pet will need to be x-rayed to determine illnesses, fractures or to rule out other possible diagnoses. Radiography can provide valuable information regarding a pet’s skeletal (bones) system, digestive (stomach, intestines, colon) system, respiratory (lungs) system, cardiac (heart) system, and genitourinary (bladder and reproductive) system.

We offer state of the art digital radiography that will help determine a quicker diagnosis. These x-rays will be examined by the veterinarian. The veterinarian may then order other diagnostic tests to complete a diagnosis.

While taking x-rays, the animal must lay completely still to achieve a clear, crisp x-ray that can be read easily. In some cases, a short-acting sedation may be necessary.

An ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure that uses ultrasonic sound waves to examine a pet’s internal organs or to check for pregnancy. It can be used to detect fluid, cysts, tumors and abscesses.
