Providing X-Ray Services in Dallas, PA
The old way of doing x-rays was slow, used environmentally harmful materials to produce, and didn’t give as much detail as we can get now. Digital radiography gives us at Back Mountain Veterinary Hospital in Dallas, PA, a non-invasive method to observe potential internal injuries/conditions of your pet to provide a more precise diagnosis. This is a painless process that can usually be performed without sedation.
We use radiographs for the following to detect:
- Bone fractures
- Bladder stones
- Soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive, and urinary systems)
- Foreign objects such as toys or rocks
- Confirmation of pregnancy after 45 days, though ultrasound is recommended to confirm viability
We can easily transfer digital X-rays to other doctors or give to the pet owner on a CD. This procedure is just one of many we offer, for instance, echocardiogram and electrocardiogram.
