Radiographs or x-rays are a non-invasive way for us to look at tissues, bones and organs. Having the equipment on hand means we are able to quickly diagnose injuries particularly in emergency situations. This is convenient for you as your pet can have all treatment done at the hospital and also means our patients are given the best opportunity for recovery.
We use digital radiography (referred to as x-ray machines) to provide us with the latest in veterinary medicine diagnosis. Providing real-time results, in a manner which is less stressful for your pet.
Patients must stay very still while having an x-ray taken. This means many of our wriggly patients are given a sedation or general anaesthetic.
