At Lakeview Animal Clinic, we use a digital X-Ray unit that produces images in seconds. Because the unit is so fast, waiting time is reduced. In addition, if your dog or cat has moved during an exposure we quickly know this right away and can reshoot immediately.
X-Rays are one of the most useful diagnostic tools for treating your pet. If a lump or growth is found during an exam, we use the x-ray to determine the size, shape and location of the mass. X-rays are also useful in pinpointing tumors and foreign bodies such as bones or chew toys and diagnosing heart and lung disease, gastrointestinal problems and bladder stones.
