Radiology

A radiograph (x-ray) is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. It can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones. It is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body's organs. Radiology is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine, often used to diagnose bladder stones, fractured bones, tumors, masses, blockages, foreign bodies, pregnancies, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, heart and lung disease, OFA Screening for hip & elbow dysplasia as well as a variety of other conditions. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who work with compassion and expertise.
