X-ray & Ultrasound

We use diagnostic equipment to investigate conditions which aren’t always evident during a clinical examination.

Both x-rays and ultrasound are examples of medical imaging. They are painless and non-invasive.
We use a modern digital x-ray system to examine your pet usually under sedation or general anaesthetic. This allows us to see not only problems with bones, but also the body organs as well such as heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and bladder.

Our high quality portable ultrasound machine allows us to scan your pet to check for pregnancy and do more detailed scans of the heart or abdominal organs. This can usually be done conscious, although occasionally sedation may be needed.
