Our facility is completely set up to capture computerized radiography of your pet, commonly known as X-rays. To decide if your pet needs radiography, our vets will examine your pet’s situation and do a comprehensive physical assessment. Radiographs are a crucial diagnostic technique for disorders in animals, especially those that affect the bones, the chest, or the abdomen.

What happens to my pet after its radiography appointment is scheduled?

Assuming there is an urgency, almost all of our patients are brought to the clinic for the day so that the radiography procedure can be conducted. We request that you bring your pet in on the morning of admittance without feeding them since they may likely be subdued or given anesthesia so that we may obtain radiographs of the highest grade.

After the radiographs are obtained, we’ll call you or schedule a consultation for one of our vets to show you the pictures and go through your pet’s prognosis and treatment options.

What makes it necessary to anaesthetize or sedate animals in order to take radiographs?

The radiographer requires the animal to remain completely motionless while taking radiographs (X-rays), frequently in awkward postures. Many animals would rarely lie in the ideal posture or remain motionless long enough for us to obtain the high-quality radiographs needed to determine their diagnosis. We can obtain the most beneficial radiographs with the use of anesthesia and sedation.

How do radiographs get developed?

With the exception of using X-rays rather than light rays, obtaining a radiography is remarkably comparable to taking a picture. The capacity of X-rays to penetrate materials is what makes radiographs effective as a diagnosis technique. The body ‘s tissues all receive X-rays to varying levels. Bones are the biological tissue that collects the most X-rays out of all others. Bone seem white on a radiograph for this reason. Soft tissues, such the kidneys or lungs, partially absorb X-rays, thus they show on a radiography in various hues of grey. Once your pet returns home, we will display and interpret the radiographs. We can then discuss the diagnosis and treatment options with you.
