We offer both digital X-ray and ultrasound options to diagnose your pet’s medical conditions
Digital Imaging and X-Rays
We offer both digital X-ray and ultrasound options and are able to use these to as a non-invasive means of diagnosing many conditions.
The digital nature of our X-ray capabilities has allowed our veterinarians to diagnose conditions that could not have been detected through other means. We use digital X-ray routinely with our pet dental cleaning exams to help with detection of tooth decay and infection. Hairline fractures and arthritis as well as the size and location of foreign bodies or cancerous tumors can be seen and the images can be manipulated by our vets so that treatment options can be more carefully planned.
Our hospital maintains excellent relationships with veterinary specialists so that we can electronically share the digital images on difficult cases and receive quick consultation. The images can also be burned onto a CD for clients to store with their pet’s records at home.
Ultrasound technology is a non-invasive means of using sound waves to examine internal structures in pets. We have an on-call specialist that can come in, by appointment, and perform ultrasound exams on the pets of Lyne Animal Hospitals. He examines the internal organs and checks for proper size, shape, location, and even blood supply to those organs. Ultrasounds can also be used to check for masses within organs, check for early pregnancy.
If our digital imaging abilities can be of help to your pet, please feel free to contact us and speak with one of our veterinarians.
