An x-rays examination provides valuable information about your pet’s skeletal structure, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). We routinely use digital radiography to help identify the cause of medical issues, or to rule out potential problems.
Radiology can be used alone, but is generally used in conjunction with other diagnostic methods. Interpretation of x-rays is completed by experienced Cabbagetown Pet Clinic team members who are trained in the latest radiological education.
To create a sharp, concise image, pets need to remain motionless while the x-ray is administered. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia to advance the process.
