Radiography

Radiography, also known as X-rays, is one of the most common and valuable medical diagnostic tools. X-rays are highly useful for screening areas of the body that have contrasting tissue densities, or when evaluating solid tissues.

Why would my cat need x-rays?

If your cat is sick or has suffered a trauma, X-rays provide a minimally invasive tool to help our doctors diagnose your cat. X-rays are also used in general wellness exams to diagnose potential problems such as asthma and kidney stores.

When is X-ray testing appropriate?

We may recommend veterinary X-rays as part of a diagnostic procedure if your cat is experiencing any health conditions or as a preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination. We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools depending on the patient’s condition. We’re fully equipped to perform routine radiology services to identify many types of illness or injury when cats are sick or suffer trauma.
