RADIOGRAPHY AND ULTRASOUND

Radiography

Medical technology continues to advance, and we are proud to be a part of it. One such advancement in medical technology is radiology, a diagnostic tool and technique that gives us an inside view of the body in a completely non-invasive way. Using X-rays, we are able to create images of all the organs of your pet’s body. As a diagnostic tool, radiology helps our veterinarians detect illnesses and treat them more effectively. Providing your pet with quality medical care of the highest caliber is our most important aim, and our entire staff is trained to do just that. Radiology is a safe medical procedure through which we can achieve that aim.  Our non-invasive X-ray system allows us to obtain immediate results, for accurate and timely diagnostic imaging of your pets, while limiting the exposure of your pet to radiation. The use of radiography is far-reaching, although it is best used for viewing solid tissues. Bone problems, for instance, that are otherwise hidden from the naked eyes can easily be detected using this tool. Our highly-trained veterinarians then interpret the radiographs for proper diagnosis and treatment. Another state-of-the-art tool we use regularly at the clinic is the ultrasound. This diagnostic tool creates images of the internal workings of your pet’s body. Ultrasounds harness the power of sound waves to provide radiation-free, non-invasive and painless imaging of your pet’s inner organs.  

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is used when we need to observe the softer internal tissues of your pet’s anatomy. Movements such as blood flow, gastrointestinal movements and heartbeats can be observed using ultrasound. An abdominal ultrasound can observe such tissues as the gallbladder, kidneys, liver, adrenal glands, ovaries, stomach, intestines, prostate, and spleen. Ultrasounds can be used to identify abnormalities of the heart and lungs, as well as the presence of tumors. Depending on the symptoms observed in your pet, or the results of preliminary testing, you might be advised to have an ultrasound performed. Ultrasound provides us with yet another tool with which we can detect illnesses in your pet and prevent them from escalating. This is an important part of our commitment to providing your pet with the best possible care. Although this equipment is invaluable if your pets are to receive proper medical care, nothing beats a thorough physical exam by one of our qualified veterinarians. Our dedicated and passionate staff are courteous, compassionate and professional, keeping your pets at ease from diagnosis to treatment. Contact us today if you have any questions concerning your pet’s health or the safety of our radiography and ultrasound procedures for your pets. We’re here to serve you and to help your pet live a happy and healthy life.
