Pet X-RayOur pets may develop illnesses or injuries that are invisible to the eye. It is sometimes difficult to determine the level of pain our pet is experiencing or the exact source of discomfort in the body. That is where experience and technology become important to your pet. Compassionate Care Animal Clinic in Boca Raton offers you both in our diagnostic imaging department. Radiographs, commonly referred to as X-rays, are widely used in any veterinary practice. Our pet radiology offers both speed and relatively low cost when diagnosing illness or injury in pets. Modern X-rays produce images that are clearer and expose the patient to very small doses of radiation, harmless to your pet when used appropriately.

A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones.

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. The size of organs is important because some medical conditions—such as kidney, heart, or liver disease—can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Tumors, depending on their size and location, can also sometimes be detected using radiography. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions.

Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet. Our pet radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise.
