A picture really is worth a thousand words.
Of all the different types of diagnostic imaging used regularly at Hunters Glen Veterinary Hospital, radiology is utilized the most. When we need more information about your pet’s bones or internal organs, radiographs (or x-rays) are often a good place to start.
Some important conditions that can be easily diagnosed using radiographs include:
- Heart conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Bony fractures
- GDV (stomach volvulus)
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Foreign body ingestion
If we are concerned about something seen on a physical exam or bloodwork, our certified technicians are trained and ready to obtain radiographic images of your pet.
