Digital X-Rays

IMG_6618A Critical Tool for Modern Veterinary Diagnostics

Both of our Pet Shots physical locations have digital Digital Radiography capability. Digital imaging allows our staff to view X-rays more quickly, not to mention more clearly. Pet Shots Clinic considers the use of digital radiograph technology as a critical tool in modern diagnostic procedures. Radiographs, which are commonly known as X-rays, are used to evaluate injuries and conditions which require more than external examination. Radiology equipment gives us a non-evasive 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, and 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, rocks, and even socks!

The imaging procedure is completely painless and can be performed on calm and cooperative pets without sedation. One of our veterinarians may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat has trouble becoming fully relaxed naturally.  Copies of X-rays can be burned onto a CD and viewed on any computer at the owner’s request.  Digital imaging allows our staff to view X-rays more quickly, not to mention more clearly.

We can often have X-rays taken immediately to have the information we need in urgent situations.

Patients are lightly sedated for radiology and in some cases, they may require general anesthesia. Your veterinarian will discuss this with you prior to the procedure taking place.
