X-rays

X-rays, also known as radiography, use electromagnetic radiation to take a picture of your pet’s insides. This allows your veterinarian to get a look at the bones and internal organs to see if there are any problems internally. This very safe procedure is excellent for dental exams or when checking for trauma injuries, evaluating broken bones, or looking for foreign objects in the body. In order to ensure that they remain still during the process, it may be necessary to anesthetize your pet.
