Our veterinary hospital in Plantation, FL utilizes non-invasive digital radiography to diagnose a wide range of health conditions in pets, from routine ailments to serious disease.
Digital radiography is a filmless x-ray system that produces immediate results, reduces exposure to radiation and requires less table time for your pets compared to the traditional film method. It is best used to view solid tissue, so is often employed when determining bone problems. It is also ideal for uncovering tooth decay and periodontal disease that can be hidden from the naked eye and thus missed during a dental exam. Our experienced veterinarians and technicians are highly skilled at obtaining and interpreting these images.
Ultrasounds are a remarkable noninvasive diagnostic tool that has revolutionized veterinary medicine by enabling veterinarians to obtain detailed images of a pet’s vital organs and internal structures. By utilizing high-frequency sound waves, ultrasounds produce real-time images that provide invaluable information about the health and well-being of your beloved pet. This painless procedure offers a safe and efficient means of diagnosing a wide range of conditions, allowing our veterinarians to detect potential issues at an early stage and provide prompt treatment.
The images obtained through ultrasound technology offer a comprehensive view of the pet’s internal organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen, and bladder. This allows us to assess the size, shape and function of these vital organs, identify any abnormalities or masses and evaluate blood flow patterns. Ultrasounds can also be used to detect conditions such as urinary tract infections, gallstones, cysts, tumors and pregnancy. This noninvasive approach is particularly beneficial for pets who may be sensitive to more invasive procedures, such as surgical exploration and provides a valuable diagnostic tool without causing discomfort or stress to the animal.
