Radiographs (X-rays) allow your veterinarian to have a "picture" of the inside of your pet in order to reveal some information that would otherwise not be apparent. X-rays are typically used to evaluate the shape, size and position of organs and bones and can help your veterinarian identify problems and conditions such as broken/displaced bones, foreign objects, bladder stones, and much more.
Ultrasounds use high frequency sound waves to produce a moving, real time image of your pet’s abdominal cavity which allows your veterinarian to diagnose and evaluate diseases and abnormalities in organ structure. An ultrasound provides an inside view of the liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys and heart. It is also useful in identifying tumors and diagnosing and monitoring pregnancy.
In-house imaging equipment allows your veterinarian to quickly identify potentially life threatening situations and to act accordingly and without delay.
