Pet Digital X-rays Provided by a Toronto Veterinarian
Technology has changed the medical field immensely, even for our four-legged friends. Today, we use advanced digital X-ray technology that allows us to see detailed images of the inside of your pet's body. This lets us provide more accurate diagnoses and even an easier time for your pet. You can complete the entire process at Jane Animal Hospital, serving Toronto, ON, and the surrounding area.
About Digital X-rays
Digital x-rays are a special type of imaging that allows our veterinarian to take pictures of the inside of your pet's body, and we can take them in our pet hospital. These X-rays allow our vet to diagnose issues like broken bones, tumors, and infection. Unlike a traditional X-ray, digital ones use X-ray sensors rather than a photographic film that was traditionally used.
Benefits of Digital X-rays
Digital X-rays offer better quality than standard X-rays because they give veterinarians clearer images of the inside of your pet's body. Therefore, our vet can better diagnose your pet's condition and more accurately.
Basically, you get to see the results in real-time, so you have less worry. When you have digital X-rays performed, our pet hospital provides you with quicker images than a standard X-rays, ultimately resulting in our veterinarian being able to determine the root of the problem sooner and can supply your pet with treatment quicker. Because of digital X-rays, your pet receives the best prognosis. This could be the difference between your pet recovering or suffering serious consequences.
Digital imaging allows us to send your pet's results to a specialist immediately if we would need to provide you with a referral.
How We Perform Digital X-rays
A member of our well-trained staff who has experience performing imaging will conduct the process. We make sure we calm your pet down before we capture the images by getting him or her to trust us. If we can't relax your pet enough, so he or she doesn't hurt herself or himself or us, we may need to give your pet a sedative. The sedative is safe and makes sure your pet doesn't experience distress during the procedure. Additionally, it lets us get a clear image to properly diagnose your pet.
Next, we use a machine that takes pictures of your pet's internal structure. Your pet won't experience any pain, nor is he or she exposed to high amounts of radiation that could possibly increase his or her risk of cancer. As soon as we take the X-ray, your pet is free to go back to you.
