X-rays allow us to "see inside the body.” They are vital in detecting broken bones (fractures), finding and assessing tumors, heart or lung problems, bladder or kidney stones, swallowed “foreign objects,” joint problems and arthritis and other conditions.
Dental X-rays play an important role in maintaining the oral and overall health of your pet. Chronic dental disease can shorten your pet’s life by as much as 5 years. A study at UC Davis found that 70% of all dental disease was below the gum line and only visible on X-ray. Dental X-rays allow us to look for infected, abscessed, fractured or cracked teeth and help evaluate oral tumors.
