Has your pet ever eaten something they weren’t supposed to (toys, clothing, etc.), or hasn’t seemed like themselves? The use of digital radiographs is a major diagnostic tool that can aid in the proper diagnosis of a pet’s condition. Unlike people, your pets don’t have the ability to tell the doctor what is wrong with them. Rather, the doctor must solve these issues with their general exam, and the use of state of the art equipment helps in a proper diagnosis. Digital x-rays allow our doctors to get an inside glimpse at all of your pet’s vital organs. With these digital pictures, we are able to identify the presence of possible foreign materials, any enlargement or unusualness in the organs, or any broken bones. Digital radiographs are also used to ensure that everything in your pet’s body is normal and healthy.
Our digital radiographs are also extremely useful when a board certified specialist is needed. Your pet’s films are simply electronically submitted to a certified specialist for evaluation. The specialists then send us back their thoughts and suggestions regarding the films and the presenting complaint. Digital radiographs are also easily e-mailed to board certified surgeons where surgery is a possibility. And a copy of your pet’s films is easily obtained. Just one click and they are burned to a CD for you to keep! Call us today with any questions regarding our digital radiology services!
