What are Radiographs?

Radiographs (also called x-rays) provide an in-depth, noninvasive look at the pet’s bones or organs. Radiography can be used as the first step for a radiologist to make a diagnosis based on a patient’s clinical signs.

Common reasons for Radiographs

  • Injury localized to a specific region
  • A follow-up to a previous imaging modality (such as Nuclear Scintigraphy)
  • Respiratory disease
  • Neurologic disease (including the spine and myelography)
  • Back and pelvic pain
  • OFA Evaluation

What to Expect

Radiographs can be scheduled as an appointment and acquired while you wait or you may drop your pet off with us, if more convenient.

Following the radiographs, one of our board-certified radiologists will review all the images and submit a final report within 24-48 hours of the exam. The report and clinical findings will then be sent to the referring veterinarian. Clients should follow up with the referring veterinarian for explanation of results and information on treatment or management.
