At the S.T.A.R. clinic, we are able to offer the use of digital x-ray as opposed to film. The resulting images are produced at a much higher resolution and because the results are available almost instantaneously, our vet can diagnose pet health conditions much more rapidly. This ensures that our patients receive the best veterinary care they need as soon as possible.
But did you know that x-rays can be used to diagnose much more than skeletal issues? Radiology is also used to examine various organs including the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys and small intestines for irregularities. These could range from a foreign body lodged in the stomach or intestine or the presence of fluid, a tumour or disease.
Ultrasound provides a painless and non-invasive way to examine your pet’s internal organs. This advanced diagnostic tool is often used in conjunction with radiography in order to identify and treat specific pet health conditions.
Ultrasound technology uses sound waves to provide a three-dimensional view of your pet’s organ giving our vet vital clues about your pet’s condition. It is most commonly used to examine the heart and abdominal organs and also offer a safe and painless way to accurately conduct pet pregnancy screening.
