Pet Digital Radiology
Digital x-rays assist in diagnosing illness & injury.
At Ocoee Animal Hospital, we use the latest in advanced computerized radiology as part of your pet's complete diagnostic care.
Radiographs (x-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions, such as examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An x-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, x-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for you and your pet.
Digital radiography is much more efficient than traditional x-rays and also bypasses chemical processing, thereby reducing your pet's exposure to radiation and limiting damage done to our environment.
If your pet is experiencing pain and you’re unable to identify the cause, reach out to us at (706) 632-7387. From there, we can discuss whether digital x-rays may be appropriate in assisting with a diagnosis.
