At Pet Doctors we offer a full range of radiology services. These services are valuable resources in helping us to make important decisions about your pet’s care.
The most common of these radiology services are x-rays. X-rays—also referred to as radiographs—are used to evaluate structures such as bones, lungs, heart and abdominal organs. The x-ray process usually takes 20-30 minutes. For safety reasons owners are not allowed to be in the radiology room while x-rays are being taken.
In most cases animals will need to be sedated to allow us to properly position them for their x-ray films. If a pet needs sedation we generally recommend leaving the pet with us for the day. Once the x-rays are completed our vets will evaluate the images and go over the results with you. In addition we have a board certified veterinary radiologist who can review the x-rays we take onsite to make sure we have obtained all the information we possibly can from your pet’s x-rays.
Ultrasound (including pregnancy diagnosis)
As part of our imaging services we also offer ultrasounds. Ultrasound imaging, or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the pet through the use of high-frequency sound waves. It is a wonderful tool that allows us to visualise the architecture of a pet’s abdominal organs in order to evaluate for masses, inflammation, stones or other changes.
We can easily determine if there is abnormal fluid in the abdomen, chest cavity or around the heart. Also, we can evaluate the size and function of the heart. Ultrasound is a non-painful procedure and rarely do pets need to be sedated. Generally pets should be fasted of food for 8 hours prior to their ultrasound. For abdominal ultrasound most pets will need to have the underside of their bellies shaved.
All of our ultrasounds are performed by our trained veterinary surgeons.
