Pet Radiography

Small Animal Radiography

Radiography is an integral part of diagnostic imaging in veterinary medicine. Radiographs, or x-ray studies, use a short burst of x-rays to create an image of your pet body. DCC Animal Hospital is well equipped with digital radiography systems that capture the radiograph without the use of a film. Radiographs are generally used to diagnose disease in the chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal systems.

Organs that we can analyze and assess via radiography are:

  • Heart
  • Trachea & lungs
  • GI tract (esophagus, stomach, small & large intestine)
  • Kidney & bladder
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Other thoracic & abdominal structures

Our veterinarians use radiography to help diagnose conditions such as:

  • Heart failure

The dysfunction of the cardiovascular system due to irregular blood flow might lead to heart failure. Moreover, the retention of the fluid in the lungs of pets might lead to backward failure, while the abnormalities in pumping the blood cause the forward failure. To identify these major issues in your little companions, take them for regular veterinary visits.

  • Pneumonia

The accumulation of pus or fluid in the air sacs of your pet’s lungs leads to infectious pneumonia, thereby causing difficulty in breathing. Lethargy, runny nose, loss of appetite, high fever, and dehydration are some of the common symptoms of Pneumonia in your little pooch. Take them to DCC Animal Hospital, where you can get cat radiographs and radiographs for dogs or other small companion animals.

  • Tracheal Collapse

If you observe respiratory disorders in your furry companions, this might be an indication of tracheal collapse, which includes the common problems that might often go unnoticed by pet owners.

Your little friend is suffering if you observe problems, such as breathing difficulty, vomiting, wheezing, and coughing while pressurizing the neck of your pet.

Additionally, obesity and unfavorable weather conditions can also cause discomfort to your pets.

  • Foreign Material Ingestion

In case your playful pets swallow foreign material, such as tissues, clothing articles, bones, food wrappers, or other objects, they may suffer severe vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and lethargy. If these symptoms persist for longer than usual, get their radiography done at DCC Animal Hospital.

  • Bladder stones

Bladder stones occur due to the accumulation of calcium and other minerals. Mostly, bladder stones keep growing large in size and numbers with time. Frequent urination, discolored urine, and licking around the urinary opening are some visible symptoms of bladder stones in pets.

To affirm any clinical diseases in your pets, pet radiography can be an accurate and efficient option to relieve your furry friends from discomfort. At DCC Animal Hospital, our experts ensure their wellness by identifying and curing their ailments timely.
