When Is Pet Radiology and Ultrasound Necessary?

Pet radiology and ultrasound may be recommended in various situations, including:

Diagnostic Evaluation

When your pet is exhibiting symptoms such as persistent lameness, difficulty breathing, or unexplained weight loss, pet radiology, and ultrasound can help identify the underlying cause.

Monitoring Chronic Conditions

For pets with chronic medical conditions such as arthritis or heart disease, regular radiographic and ultrasound examinations can help monitor disease progression and treatment effectiveness.

Pre-Surgical Assessment

Prior to surgery, pet radiology and ultrasound may be performed to assess the extent of an injury or disease, helping our veterinarians plan the most appropriate surgical approach.
