A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is a type of photograph that reveals the body’s bones and internal organs. The procedure for obtaining a radiograph is called radiography. Radiography is a very useful diagnostic tool for veterinarians because it can help obtain information about almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones. We have a digital xray machine that we use in house to do or radiography and then we are able to transfer images to an IPAD in order to bring into rooms and show you first hand the results. Sedation is sometimes recommended for patients undergoing xrays. This procedure is often used to diagnose broken bones, intestinal blockages, bladder stones, and some types of cancer.
