Our advanced imaging techniques allow us to gain valuable insights into your pet’s condition, helping us tailor effective treatment plans for their needs.

The Use Of Advanced Technologies In Pet Care

At Angelus Pet Hospital, we are committed to offering the highest quality care to your beloved pets. We leverage advanced technologies, including X-rays, to provide accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans. Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to visualize internal structures and identify underlying issues that may not be apparent through physical examinations alone. By embracing cutting-edge technologies, we ensure that your pets receive the best possible care, leading to improved health and well-being.

X-Rays Can Diagnose:

  • Fractures and bone injuries
  • Joint abnormalities and arthritis
  • Dental problems
  • Tumors and masses
  • Foreign objects swallowed or lodged in the body
  • Respiratory issues and lung conditions
  • Heart problems
  • Gastrointestinal blockages or abnormalities
  • Bladder and urinary tract issues
  • Soft tissue injuries and organ abnormalities

How X-Rays For Pets Work

X-rays, or radiographs, are a powerful diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that can pass through tissues of varying densities, such as skin, muscle, and bone. When X-rays pass through the body, they are absorbed differently by different tissues, creating an image on a specialized film or digital sensor.
Dense structures like bones appear white on the X-ray image, while less dense tissues appear as shades of gray, and air-filled spaces appear black. This allows veterinarians to visualize the internal structures of pets, aiding in the detection of fractures, foreign objects, tumors, and other abnormalities that might not be visible from the outside.

Benefits Of X-Ray Technology:

  • Non-invasive imaging
  • Quick and efficient diagnostic tool
  • Helps identify hidden or internal issues
  • Provides detailed visualization of bones, organs, and tissues
  • Assists in planning surgeries or treatments
  • Reduces the need for exploratory surgeries
  • Can be used on various parts of the body
  • Often eliminates the need for multiple tests
  • Faster surgery and treatment with less time under sedation
  • Safe and well-tolerated by pets with minimal radiation exposure
  • Aids in making accurate and informed medical decisions

How We Perform X-Rays

Performing X-rays on pets involves placing the animal in a controlled environment where the X-ray machine emits a focused beam of radiation through the body. The pets must stay still during the process, which might require mild sedation for comfort. The X-ray beam creates an image on a specialized film or digital detector, capturing internal structures like bones, organs, and tissues. Our professionals ensure the procedure is safe, effective, and minimally stressful for your pet. The resulting images help us diagnose and plan treatments accurately.
