Radiology

Since we cannot ask our patients “What is the matter?”, digital diagnostic imaging has become the center of modern veterinary medicine.  Digital x-rays can aid in the diagnosis and proper treatment of many serious diseases.  Our new digital system benefits your pet by providing improved diagnostic capacity with better imaging, enlargement capabilities, and computer enhancement, such as measurement and notation. This new system is also more environmentally friendly, no longer requiring the harsh chemicals necessary to develop standard x-rays.  It is also safer for your pet and our hospital personnel taking the x-rays.  Digital radiograph technology also allows us to easily consult with veterinary specialists.
