Radiography

Even though our clinic may appear small in size, specialized diagnostic equipment is still available! Digital (computer generated) x-rays provide Dr. Fuller with the best-quality digital imaging to help make accurate diagnoses.

X-rays are routinely done to check for possible internal diseases involving the chest and abdomen, and also for mobility problems, such as limping and arthritis.

 

Dental radiography is also available with a small, separate x-ray unit. This unit is designed to take dental x-rays of your pet while he or she is under general anesthetic. This allows the veterinary staff to look for fractured teeth, tooth root abscesses, and cavity-like lesions. It also enables the veterinarian to make important decisions on which teeth need to be monitored more closely during future appointments.
