Advanced Imaging – Radiology & Ultrasounds

The clinic has a modern, digital x-ray machine machine allowing us to take clear images of your pet. X-ray is an important diagnostic imaging tool which allows us to see inside your pet’s chest, abdomen and skeletal system to help diagnose any problems.

We also offer x-rays of pregnant animals in order to count the number of babies they are expecting.

We have an ultrasound machine that enables us to perform pregnancy ultrasounds and other diagnostic ultrasounds on your pets. Ultrasound is an effective tool at diagnosing many medical problems and we frequently utilize this during consultations to help determine what might be going on with your pet.

We can also arrange for specialist veterinary ultrasonographers to come to the clinic and scan your pet for the more complex cases that require a specialist diagnosis.

Here at The Pet Practice we are experienced at performing comprehensive hip and elbow x-rays for all breeds for regular assessment by our vets and for specialist hip and elbow scoring.

Hip and elbow dysplasia are common problems in many breeds and this is why these x-rays are so important in order to assess for the presence of these often hereditary abnormalities – this information is useful for breeding selection decisions, as well as to ensure any conditions can be effectively managed for your pet’s quality of life.

We can perform spinal scheme x-rays for all breeds, but this service is particularly aimed toward French Bulldogs. This breed is predisposed to spinal defects, particularly hemivertebrae, and so x-rays are important to detect the quality of the spinal formation.

Our x-rays are able to be sent for specialist spinal scoring if required, and our vets can also provide a regular assessment of the images too. This information is useful for breeding selection decisions, as well as to ensure any conditions can be effectively managed for your pet’s quality of life.
