Digital Radiology (X-rays)

Digital X-Ray Technology Available For Your Pets!

Sometimes your pet may require an x-ray to determine or rule out the cause of a problem or provide a list of potential causes.

X-rays provide the following valuable information about your pet’s bones, stomach, intestines, colon, lungs, heart, bladder and prostate. They are used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools at our animal hospital. Our veterinarian will be pleased to review your pet’s x-rays with you during the consultation at Lockerby Animal Hospital.

To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. In some cases, our team may need to sedate your pet or use a short-acting general anesthesia. This will also help to make the experience more comfortable for your pet.
