What Is Veterinary Radiology?
Veterinary radiology uses various diagnostic imaging technologies, like x-rays, to create images of the inside of your pet's body. Your vet may x-ray your pet to help diagnose various health problems such as bone fractures, respiratory diseases, gallbladder stones, and arthritis. Dental radiology is also helpful in pet dentistry, allowing veterinarians to better understand what is happening under the gums.
Why Would My Pet Need Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging?
Veterinary radiology can look at your pet's bones for fractures and signs of arthritis and examine the chest cavity for respiratory diseases like pneumonia or detect an enlarged heart. Depending on location, radiology services may be provided in the comfort of your home or in one of BetterVet’s vet-equipped vehicles.
Based on location, our veterinary doctors may provide diagnostic imaging exams in the comfort of your own home or our medically-equipped vehicles. X-rays are pain-free and non-invasive, medications may be prescribed beforehand to keep them calm and relaxed during the procedure. In some cases, images may require a consultation with a board-certified radiologist for interpretation.
