Imaging 

We use the most advanced digital imaging technology available for those times when an external veterinary exam isn't enough.  Our technicians are experts at keeping your pet comfortable while we take the necessary radiographs to determine the best treatment options available.  Pet radiographs are often necessary in cases of:

  • Fractures and orthopedic problems
  • Bladder stones
  • Tumors
  • Soft tissue problems
  • Swallowed objects
  • Heart and lung disease

 

Digital x-rays, the new standard of care for top veterinary practices, allows for more thorough images and results in seconds, all of which combine to help us treat your pet quickly and with the greatest amount of accuracy in alleviating the cause of the problem.
