Pet Radiology in Canton, IL
With the use of specialized veterinary imaging technology, our radiology department can quickly take high-quality digital X-rays of your pet.
For many years, veterinarians have employed radiographs as a reliable, non-invasive method to examine the body of an animal. High-energy radiography beams are directed into the desired area of your pet’s body using radiograph equipment. The radiographic rays will be absorbed by the denser tissues in your pet’s body, such as the bones and teeth, and this will be captured on the computer screen.
One of the numerous reasons we would advise having digital radiographs taken of your pet is:
- To check for bone fractures, joint dislocations, and other injuries related to blunt or high-force trauma
- To rule in or out the presence of certain health conditions, including bone tumors
We’ll most likely give your pet sedative or, if necessary, general anesthesia during a digital radiology scan. This is done to guarantee that your pet is calm and at ease throughout the treatment and that any photos obtained are as sharp and readable as possible.
