X-RAY + Ultrasound
X-rays are a very important part of everyday veterinary practice. X-rays provide vital information about what is happening inside your pet; whether it is a sore joint, a painful stomach or a persistent cough. We use Computed Radiography to give us the best diagnostic images possible. This means we can confidently identify abnormalities in bone, soft tissue and internal organs.
X-rays expose our staff to potentially dangerous radiation. Having good x-ray equipment and a radiation proof room is therefore essential. To limit the number of repeat x-rays we have to take we use high performing digital x-ray equipment which means we can produce excellent x-rays with accurate diagnostic images first time.
All our staff involved with x-ray procedures have their radiation levels individually monitored and checked every 3 months by the National Radiation Laboratory. This is why, when performing x-rays, we would need to sedate your pet to minimise the x-ray exposure to them and our staff.
Our vets are able to perform a range of ultrasound examinations. Ultrasound is a painless and very safe procedure for checking abdominal and organ health, pregnancy diagnosis and deep tissue examination of lumps and potential foreign bodies.
