The Importance of Pet X-Rays

At Animal Emergency Center PC, we utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to identify your pet’s underlying health conditions and ensure that they are diagnosed correctly and treatment can be administered promptly. X-rays are some of the most important diagnostic tools we offer at our hospital. Some common conditions that X-rays help diagnose include:

  • Bladder stones
  • Broken bones
  • Enlarged organs
  • Chest and lung injuries
  • Masses or tumors
  • Stomach or intestinal obstructions
  • …and many more

For some pets, anesthesia is required to keep pets calm and immobile during their x-rays. This generally depends on the pet, the nature of the injury and the area of the body that needs to be examined. X-rays can also be shared with specialists for second opinions about your pet’s condition.

If your pet is sick or injured, and your primary family veterinarian is not available, please contact us immediately and let us help you and your pet! “When you need us, we’ll be here!”
