X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool in order to see what is going on inside of your pet if they are sick or injured. They can help to identify or rule out potential
problems that we are unable to see with the naked eye. X-rays can also be a great screening tool to check for potential problems before they become serious issues. They can detect a wide range of issues such as orthopedic problems, tumors, foreign bodies, heart and lung issues, kidney and bladder stones, and so much more.
We may need to sedate your pet to get the images we need as motion will cause a blurry image or your pet may be too painful to perform the desired x-rays with them awake. This is something that will be discussed at the time of the appointment and when we go over the estimate.
