When we have questions, X-rays and ultrasounds help provide the answers. With the help of our advanced digital diagnostic tools, we can accurately diagnose the source of your pet’s discomfort. To learn more about our diagnostic tools, call us at 403-242-0045.
Are X-rays and Ultrasounds safe for my pet?
All our digital diagnostic tools are non-invasive and safe to use on pets. If your pet is in pain or is feeling anxious, we may sedate them to ensure they are comfortable throughout the process. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your pet feels at ease and safe during the procedure. If you have any questions or concerns, our veterinarians would be happy to discuss the process with you and answer any questions you may have.
What can X-rays help diagnose?
Some pets have mastered the art of hiding their pain. This can make it difficult to diagnose and treat them. X-rays and ultrasounds capture images of your pet’s internal structures and organs, such as their bones and soft tissues. They help our veterinarians get a better look at what’s happening inside your pet’s body and diagnose any underlying conditions your pet may be experiencing. They can help us diagnose and monitor conditions such as:
- Broken bones
- Swallowed objects
- Cysts and tumours
- Enlarged organs
