Pet Radiology (X-Rays)

When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use X-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems, or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use X-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.

X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Interpretation of radiographs requires great skill on the part of the veterinarian.

X-ray of a pet
To avoid a blurry image, pets must remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. Sometimes, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about our radiology service or what to expect during your pet’s procedure.
