At White Oaks Veterinary Clinic in Edmond, our staff is fully committed to providing safe, affordable, and effective veterinary care for all your pet wellness needs. Whether you’re caring for a dog, cat, horse, or other animal companion, it’s helpful to know about the wide range of services we offer to help keep your pets happy and healthy. One diagnostic tool our veterinarian staff may rely on in the delivery of quality care is x-ray imaging.
Our Veterinarian Recommends Pet X-Rays
X-ray imaging (also known as radiography) is a safe and essential tool in the diagnosis of many health conditions that require more than just an external examination. Our Edmond veterinarian may recommend the use of x-rays if he or she suspects injuries or illnesses including:
- Bone fractures
- Bladder stones and other possible blockages
- Ingestion of a foreign object
When to Bring Your Pet in For an X-Ray in Edmond
First, expect that you and your animal will be treated with respect, patience, and care. Before x-rays are taken, we’ll make sure any of your questions about the procedure are answered. To ensure your pet’s comfort and safety, we’ll be using light sedation on your animal during the procedure, or, in some cases, general anesthesia.
Next, using our state-of-the-art digital Fuji CR radiology system, we’ll take the images we need to make an accurate and efficient diagnosis. Because our staff at White Oaks Veterinary Clinic utilizes digital radiography, this means that results from the x-rays are obtained faster and can be shared with you and other team members more quickly.
Finally, our Edmond veterinarian will discuss with you the results of any x-rays taken, and what the next steps should be in the caring of your animal.
