Sometimes, just looking on the outside is not enough to know what’s going on below the surface. Ultrasounds and X-rays allow us to get a better look at what’s going on inside your pet’s body. These diagnostic tools enable our team to accurately diagnose and treat the source of your pet’s discomfort. To learn more, call us at 403-249-2535.
What can X-rays help diagnose?
Some diseases have no visible symptoms or warning signs. That’s where X-ray and ultrasound imaging comes in. With the help of our onsite diagnostic tools, our veterinarians can accurately visualize and diagnose any diseases and conditions your pet may be experiencing. This can help us diagnose and monitor conditions such as:
- Tumours and abscesses
- Abnormal swelling
- Enlarged organs
- Broken or sprained bones
- Swallowed foreign objects
Will my pet need to be sedated?
The process is typically painless and safe. Our priority is making sure your furry loved one is comfortable. It is important to us that they are not in any pain or feeling anxious. If they are, we may sedate them. Making sure they are calm and still also helps us get more precise results to find the source of their discomfort.
