Radiographs (x-rays) are a commonly used tool in both veterinary and human medicine. X-rays reveal almost every soft tissue in the body (stomach, intestines, bladder, heart, kidneys and lungs) in addition to bones. At Centretown, the digital x-rays we utilize provide detailed information to help identify and diagnose a host of issues.
How do you use x-ray and radiology services at your clinic?
It is through this imaging that veterinarians are able to get a “picture” of what is going on inside your pet. They are often the greatest clues to both disease and the effectiveness of treatment.
How should I prepare my dog for their x-ray appointment?
Feel free to ask questions and talk to one of our team members to discuss any special requirements, but most often there is no special preparation needed for x-rays. On occasion, fasting instructions or timing of elimination may be required.
