We are proud to offer state of the art digital x-rays on site in our hospital! Radiographs (sometimes called X-rays) are a valuable diagnostic tool that allow us to see what is going on inside the body. We can evaluate the heart, the lungs, the belly, and the bones. We also offer digital dental x-rays.
Taking an x-ray is painless, completely non-invasive, and safe. Only a small dose of radiation is used to make each image, so x-rays are safe for puppies, kittens, and pregnant animals when it is clearly indicated.
Sometimes sedation is required for specialized radiographs, such as taking x-rays for OFA certification (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals). We now offer PennHip radiographs! This procedure is used for early detection of hip dysplasia and is also used for screening prior to breeding.
