Radiology (or X-rays) is a crucial tool in veterinary medicine. Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Our affiliate hospital has the technology through digital means, to allow Radiologists to quickly and accurately evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular/cardiopulmonary (heart and lungs), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. Radiographs are vital in detecting bone fractures, chronic arthritis, bladder stones, certain spinal cord diseases and for finding and assessing tumors. They can be helpful in locating foreign material such as swallowed fishhooks, safety pins and a variety of other conditions. It is a valuable diagnostic instrument to allow skilled professionals to make a correct diagnosis for your pet.
