When Will Apple Valley Veterinarian in Southington Use a Digital X-Ray

When it comes to providing you with accurate information about your pet’s health, we may recommend a digital x-ray. This provides your team with more detailed information about what is happening within their pet’s body so that your veterinarian in Southington can offer a more complete and accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. We may recommend the use of a digital x-ray for several medical conditions  including:

  • Bone fractures
  • Bladder stones
  • Soft tissue concerns including all organs
  • Location of foreign objects
  • Detection of masses

We can use these tools to provide us with exceptional insight into your pet’s care needs and his or her health.

The Benefits of Animal X-Rays Prior to Pet Surgery

Pet surgery can be just as risky as surgical procedures are for humans. When your pet needs surgery, animal x rays can help reduce the risk… For example, prior to dog surgery or cat surgery, our veterinarians may first provide thorough diagnostic screenings and x rays to gather information about what is happening. We can use digital x-rays to help us to plan a surgery so it can be as quick and successful as possible. In addition, after dog surgery or cat surgery, we may recommend additional x-rays as a way to assess the results. We highly recommend this type of non-invasive procedure on a routine basis when necessary to follow up with care.

Why Apple Valley Veterinarian in Southington Use Digital X-Rays

When you visit Apple Valley Vets in Southington, you’ll learn the many benefits of digital x-rays over traditional film x-rays. First, they are still very non-invasive. This means they provide us with a view into what’s happening with your pet without having to create a risk of infection. Additionally, digital x-rays provide us with fast information. There’s no lag time waiting for film development. In emergency situations, this is very important. The information encoded in digital radiographs is deeper and richer than analog films. Lastly, all of our radiographs are submitted to board certified radiologists for opinions by specialists providing us with state of the art readings that help confirm and expand our diagnoses. We have these reports available within hours of doing the x-Ray study.

We provide digital x-rays right in our office. This convenience to you is also helpful to our team because it gives you even faster access to the information necessary. In some cases, you may need to drop your pet off for the procedure, or, sometimes, we can do them during an examination. Pets may receive light sedation for these exams. We’ll talk to you more about that need based on your pet’s specific areas of concern.

The need for x-rays differs from one pet to the next. When you come in for an exam, our team will tell you whether your pet needs x-rays and why.
