As in human medicine, x-rays or radiology can be used to diagnose and evaluate progress in conditions such as:
bone and soft tissue tumors
heart and lung disease
urinary bladder stones
foreign object ingestion
evaluate the size and quantity of unborn puppies/kittens before birth
Radiographs are a cost effective and minimally invasive diagnostic tool. Fortunately, we typically do not need sedation and can complete the series of films while you wait during an office visit. In the event that sedation is needed, we typically ask you to wait or run a quick errand. Once completed, we review all findings to show exactly what was found in order to plan for further treatment.
