Why might my pet need an X-ray or an ultrasound?

X-rays and ultrasounds are often necessary to diagnose health issues such as fractures, bone abnormalities, abnormal masses, or cardiac and abdominal disorders. These diagnostic tools provide detailed information about internal structures, allowing our veterinary team to establish an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of your pet.

What is the difference between an X-ray and an ultrasound?

X-rays produce detailed images of bones, ideal for diagnosing fractures and dental problems. On the other hand, ultrasounds provide real-time images of internal organs and soft tissues, allowing a detailed assessment of organ health such as the liver, kidneys, bladder, and detection of abnormal masses.

Will my animal need anesthesia for these exams?

Generally, X-rays do not require anesthesia, but mild sedation may be recommended for an abdominal ultrasound to calm the patient. The decision depends on the type of exam, the temperament of the animal, and the recommendations of the veterinary team. We will always discuss any decisions related to sedation or anesthesia with you before the examination.
