Animal Medical Clinic utilizes digital radiography (digital x-ray) to aid in the diagnosis of many common medical conditions. This modern diagnostic tool offers better contrast and quicker results when compared with traditional radiography. Since the images are digital, they can also easily be sent to specialists for evaluation if necessary.
X-rays help our doctors evaluate the skeletal system, heart, lungs, and other internal organs. Over the years, radiographs have helped us diagnose all sorts of problems including intestinal obstructions, broken bones, allergic lung disease, abdominal masses, bladder stones- the list goes on!
Radiographs are a great non-invasive and pain-free diagnostic tool. In the majority of cases, sedation is not required, making it a great choice for evaluating sick or frail pets.
If you believe your pet needs x-rays, call us today and schedule a time to meet with Dr. Fastenrath or Dr. Maddox.
