What are Pet Radiographs?

Pet radiographs are images of your pet’s internal structures, such as bones, organs, and tissues, created using X-ray technology. These images can help our veterinarians diagnose various conditions, including fractures, tumors, and foreign objects.

When are Pet Radiographs Needed?
Pet radiographs may be recommended in the following situations:

  • To evaluate suspected fractures or bone abnormalities
  • To diagnose or monitor the progression of arthritis
  • To detect tumors or masses
  • To assess the size and shape of organs
  • To locate foreign objects that may have been swallowed
  • In some cases, radiographs may be used as part of routine preventive care to detect potential health issues early.
  • Radiographs can reveal the presence of tumors, organ enlargement, and other abnormalities that may indicate disease.

Our Approach to Pet Radiographs
Our veterinarians use a gentle approach to perform radiographs on pets. Sedation may sometimes be used to keep your pet calm and still during the procedure. We aim to ensure your pet is comfortable and relaxed throughout the process.

Benefits of Pet Radiographs

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Radiographs provide detailed images that help veterinarians accurately diagnose and treat medical conditions in pets.
  • Non-Invasive: Radiographs are a non-invasive imaging technique, meaning they do not require surgery or anesthesia.
  • Quick Results: Radiographs provide immediate results, allowing veterinarians to make prompt treatment decisions.

Your veterinarian may recommend radiographs for your pet if they are experiencing:

  • Lameness or limping
