Radiographs, also referred to as X-rays, allow us to view inside your pet’s body and disclose information that is not visible from the outside. Additionally, X-rays are safe, painless, and noninvasive. Even pregnant and very young pets can have X-rays taken because of the extremely low radiation level utilised in radiography. Radiographs allow us to assess the size, shape, and location of many different pet organs as well as the condition of the bones. Radiographs allow us to spot changes in organ size caused by diseases like kidney, heart, or liver illness. Some medical diseases, such as intestinal blockage or cancer, can also change or distort the form and location of organs.
Additionally, radiographs are used to diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders, including malignancies, broken bones, persistent arthritis, some diseases of the spinal cord, and bladder stones. Radiographs can also be used to find and classify foreign objects that an animal has swallowed.
