X-Rays for Diagnosis
Just like when you are injured and visit a doctor, X-rays are helpful in diagnosing a wide range of pet health issues. X-rays are a painless way to evaluate skeletal and muscle problems, such as arthritis, bone fractures and hip dysplasia. X-rays can also be used to examine internal organs such as the heart, intestine, kidneys, liver and lungs. An X-ray can identify irregularities in these organs ranging from a disease or tumor to puppy problems such as a swallowed toy.
Most Common Reasons for Animal X-Rays
X-rays may be necessary for a range of different issues. Here are the most common situations where our vet would use X-ray technology on your pet:
- Fractured or broken bones
- Kidney stones
- Swallowed toys
- Heart conditions
- Lung disease
Advantages of Pet Care X-Rays
Anyone who has had an X-ray knows that they provide clear images of bones and internal organs, and that the process is fast. X-ray technology is now commonly used in pet care. X-rays are completely safe for use on your beloved pet. However, some pets may need to be sedated to help us capture clear X-ray images. Here are some of the many advantages of using X-rays:
- Clear, accurate images of trouble areas
- Fast, precise veterinary diagnosis
- Immediate results available digitally
- Less time for pets under anesthesia
