Radiology

 

In this radiograph, you can clearly see the dog's spine, pelvis, & part of the rear legs.

 

In 2011, we upgraded our radiograph services by adding a digital processor.  Digital x-rays provide us with an enhanced view of your pet, allowing us to reach a more precise diagnosis.  This new technology also gives us the ability to send radiographs out to specialists and provide you with a copy if needed.

Radiograph Procedure

If the doctor recommends a radiograph to better diagnose your pet, he or she will discuss this with you.  A staff member will then take your pet to the x-ray room and you will be asked to wait in the exam room.  Once in the x-ray room, your pet will be measured to ensure that the proper settings are entered into the x-ray machine.  Once positioned on the table, the staff will take the radiograph(s) and then your pet will be returned to you.  In some instances, it may be necessary to sedate an animal to ensure a clear shot or to ease their pain/discomfort during the procedure.  Once the assistant has the radiographs uploaded, the doctor will view them and may make some notations on them depending on the case.  A staff member will then have you come to the x-ray room so the doctor can explain the findings, answer any questions you may have, and discuss a treatment plan.
