Our veterinarians use radiographs, commonly referred to as X-rays, as a useful tool in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of medical conditions in pets. Veterinarians can view the internal anatomy of the body, including the bones, soft tissues, and foreign objects, with this painless and non-invasive procedure.

At Animal Hospital of Aurora, we embrace the power of radiography to ensure that your dog receives the most thorough and advanced diagnostic care. Imagine a diagnostic experience where every image tells a story, guiding us toward a nuanced understanding of your dog’s health. Trust us to utilize radiography as a powerful lens, capturing the essence of your dog’s well-being and paving the way for targeted interventions that prioritize their health and happiness.

Common Uses of Radiography in Pets

  • Fractures: Radiography is the standard imaging technique for diagnosing fractures in pets. It allows veterinarians to determine the location and severity of the fracture, which is essential for planning treatment.
  • Orthopedic Conditions: Radiography is also used to diagnose and monitor other orthopedic conditions in pets, such as hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and arthritis.
  • Abdominal Issues: Radiography can help veterinarians diagnose abdominal problems in pets, such as foreign body ingestion, bladder stones, and tumors.
  • Thoracic Conditions: Radiography can be used to evaluate chest conditions in pets, such as pneumonia, heart disease, and lung tumors.
