X-rays (also known as radiographs) are utilized to evaluate organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, abdomen, etc.), soft tissue (such as muscle or tendon) and dense tissue (such as bones). Changes in shape, size and position of organs can be an indicator of disease. X-rays can also uncover medical issues such as fractured bones, dislocated joints, infection, abnormal bone growths, changes due to metabolic bone disease and conditions such as arthritis.
Multiple images taken from different angles provide a comprehensive look at an area of interest. Our experienced veterinarians and licensed technicians are highly skilled at obtaining and interpreting these images.
Pups@Play offers digital x-rays that produce immediate results, reduce exposure to radiation and require less table time for your pets versus the traditional film method. Digital x-rays are also ideal for uncovering tooth decay and periodontal disease that can be hidden from the naked eye and thus missed during a dental exam.
