We offer the latest in digital imaging in order to provide quick and accurate diagnostic images for your pet. This allows our veterinarian to diagnose conditions that sometimes cannot be detected on a routine physical exam.
We also count on the ability to share these digital images electronically with board certified specialist who can help us in difficult cases and receive quick consultation.
Most x-rays can be taken with your pet fully awake. Sometimes it is best to lightly sedate or even anesthetize your pet for a short period in order to do radiographs. Sedation may be necessary if the pet is aggressive or also if they are in a lot of pain. We have to get certain radiographs in very specific positions and these movements could be painful for the pet, therefore sedation is greatly helpful to keep the pet from suffering pain during the procedure.
