Radiography & Ultrasound

Animals sometimes have illnesses or injuries that we are unable to see without the use of diagnostic technology. To more efficiently and accurately diagnose the problem, Hickory Veterinary Hospital is equipped with digital radiography (X-ray) and ultrasound technology. Having this capability in-house saves time and allows our veterinarians to diagnose issues faster and more accurately.

X-rays use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They are useful for detecting a variety of medical issues in your pet such as tumors, bladder and kidney stones, arthritis, bone damage, dental issues and many other types of illnesses and injuries.

Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time internal image of an animal’s body, and is used to diagnose bladder stones, gastrointestinal obstructions, tumors, kidney disease, and many other illnesses.

Our veterinarians may recommend X-rays or ultrasounds as a part of a diagnostic procedure if your pet is experiencing any health conditions or as a preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination.

If you would like to know more about our advanced diagnostics or want to schedule your pet for an appointment, call us at 443-371-9046 ext. 2.
