Animals sometimes have illnesses or injuries that we are unable to see without the use of diagnostic technology. To correctly diagnose an illness or injury in your pet, your veterinarian may recommend using radiography (X-rays). X-rays 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.
Our veterinarians may recommend x-rays as a part of a diagnostic procedure if your pet is experiencing any health conditions or as preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination.
Hickory Veterinary Hospital is equipped with an advanced x-ray room so that we can perform radiology services in-house. This will save time and allow our veterinarians to diagnose issues faster and more accurately.
