Preventative care and early detection are key when it comes to making sure your pet stays healthy. One of the most powerful tools we have for that is diagnostic imaging, also known as radiograph or X-ray.
At Lake Pine Animal Hospital, we perform all of our X-rays in-house. We use digital radiology which uses less radiation and allows us to give you an answer faster. These tests can show us skeletal fractures, some soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease. While X-rays are non-invasive, some do require that the patient remains completely still, so sedation and/or anesthesia of your pet may be necessary. However, the duration of sedation is usually short, and patients tend to recover quickly.
Our vets and trained staff will monitor your pet throughout the procedure and recovery.
