We have the latest tools and technology to help diagnose your pet
In addition to laboratory testing, our facility is also fully equipped to perform digital radiology. Digital radiology, or x-ray, is an essential diagnostic tool that can create images of your pet’s internal organs and systems without exposing them to dangerous radiation. Radiology is helpful for diagnosing cardiac disease, heart murmurs, respiratory issues, gastrointestinal and digestive system disorders, renal disease, bladder stones, urinary tract disease, tumors, musculoskeletal disorders, and arthritis. The procedure is painless, fast, non-invasive, and precise.
X-ray technology can be helpful in both routine and emergency situations thanks to its innumerable applications. It allows a trained practitioner to see the heart, lungs, musculoskeletal system, and other internal organs. With this information, they can then interpret the images to make informed decisions about your cat or dog’s health. At Premier Pet Care, we employ digital x-ray technology in lieu of the older method of film x-rays because it affords us several benefits, including:
- Faster acquisition of images
- Better quality and accuracy of images
- Less radiation subjected to the animal (thanks to the decreased amount of time needed)
- Ease of sending pictures over the internet to specialists in separate offices if necessary
- Ease of storing images for future use electronically
These attributes of digital X-ray technology allow us to more precisely diagnose and treat patients, thereby increasing our quality of service to you.
