Grand Park Animal Hospital considers the use of digital radio graph technology as a critical tool in modern diagnostic procedures. Radio graphs, which are commonly known as X-rays, are used to evaluate injuries and conditions which require more than external examination. Radiology equipment gives us a non-evasive way to observe your pet’s internal physiology so that we can provide a more thorough and accurate diagnosis. Our veterinarians use radio graphs to detect bone fractures, bladder stones, and tumors, soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive, and urinary systems) as well as to locate swallowed foreign objects such as toys or rocks.
The imaging procedure is completely painless and can be performed on calm and cooperative pets without sedation. Your veterinarian may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat has trouble becoming fully relaxed naturally.
Our X-rays can be evaluated by board-certified radiologists who give us their expert advice and reports within a few hours.
We can have X-rays taken immediately and have the information we need in urgent situations.
Copies of X-rays can be emailed and viewed on any computer at the owner’s request.
We are proud to offer digital imaging here at Grand Park Animal Hospital. Digital imaging allows our staff to view X-rays more quickly, not to mention more clearly.
