Digital Radiography

The team at Animal Medical Hospital & Urgent Care considers the use of digital radiography technology as a critical tool in modern diagnostic procedures. We use radiographs, which are commonly known as X-rays, to evaluate injuries and conditions that require more than external examination. Radiology equipment gives us a noninvasive way to observe your pet’s internal physiology so that we can provide a more thorough and accurate diagnosis. Our veterinarians use radiographs to detect bone fractures, bladder stones, tumors, soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive, and urinary systems), as well as to locate swallowed foreign objects such as toys or rocks.

The imaging procedure is completely painless and can be performed on calm and cooperative pets without sedation. Your veterinarian may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat has trouble becoming fully relaxed.
