Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Digital X-Ray?
X-rays, also known as radiographs, are very short bursts of X-rays to create images of your pet’s body. Digital radiography captures the radiograph without the use of any film. Radiographs are used to diagnose diseases in the chest, abdomen and musculoskeletal system of your pet.
We also study gastrointestinal tracts and other obstructions. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of veterinary medical imaging.
Are X-Rays Painful or Harmful for My Pet?
No, X-rays are a painless procedure. Depending on the pet, we may not need to even sedate them. However, if your dog or cat has anxiety issues, sedation may be administered to relax the pet enough to remain still.
With the recent developments in digital X-ray technology, X-rays are extremely safe for pets and humans alike. Digital X-rays expose your pet to a small dose of radiation that is considered harmless.
