Seeing Health Clearly For Your Pet
Oak Knoll Vet Clinic offers x-ray services for pets as a diagnostic tool to help identify potential health problems. X-rays provide a non-invasive and painless way to visualize the internal structures of an animal’s body, such as bones, organs, and tissues. This technology can help diagnose a variety of conditions, including fractures, tumors, foreign objects, and digestive issues. X-rays are an important tool for our veterinarians in detecting and diagnosing underlying health problems, which can aid in creating an effective treatment plan for your pet.
With our x-ray services, Oak Knoll Vet Clinic ensures that our patients receive the highest level of care and that any potential health issues are caught and treated as early as possible.
The process of getting an x-ray for an animal typically involves the following steps:
- Preparation: Before the x-ray, the animal may be sedated or given a light anesthesia to keep them still and comfortable during the procedure. If necessary, the fur may be clipped to allow for clear visualization of the area of interest.
- Positioning: The animal will be positioned in a manner that allows for the best visualization of the area of interest, either on a flat table or standing with the use of specialized equipment.
- Imaging: The x-ray machine will be positioned around the animal and the x-ray will be taken. The procedure is usually quick and lasts only a few minutes.
- Review: The x-ray images will be reviewed by the veterinarian to identify any potential issues. If necessary, additional images may be taken to get a better view of the area of interest.
- Results: The veterinarian will discuss the results of the x-ray with the pet owner and explain any potential health concerns or issues that have been identified. If necessary, a treatment plan will be created to address any issues detected.
It is important to note that x-rays are a safe and effective diagnostic tool for animals and are performed with their comfort and well-being in mind.
