One of the most common and valuable medical diagnostic tools is radiography or x-rays. Our hospital is equipped to perform routine radiology services to identify many types of illness or injury when pets are sick or suffer a trauma.
X-rays can detect:
- Lung abnormalities, including pneumonia, etc.
- Bladder and kidney stones
They are also used to
- Evaluate bone damage and organ integrity
- Identify foreign objects that may have been ingested
Dental radiographs will help distinguish between healthy teeth and those that may need to be extracted and identify any abnormalities beneath the gums, including root damage, tumours and abscesses.
Our veterinarians may recommend x-rays as a part of a diagnostic procedure if your pet is experiencing any health conditions or as a preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination.
