PET MEDICAL IMAGING
Digital Radiography (X-Rays)
We are lucky to have one of the best digital x-ray units available. This allows excellent image quality and a better ability to diagnose your pet’s health concerns, as well as less time spent taking images and less radiation exposure.
Being fully digital, our system also allows us to plan surgical procedures on the radiographs before any actual surgery, as well as share images with specialists or clients easily.

FAQs About Pet Medical Imaging
Is the radiation from x-rays dangerous for my pet?
The amount of radiation from X-rays is very low and safe. Often, the amount of radiation from an X-ray is less than we’re exposed to from other sources over time. However, we always strive to minimise exposure, and our system allows quick and accurate imaging to be taken.
Generally, we do need to sedate or anaesthetise pets for imaging. This is to ensure that they are kept still for the procedure, as movement will blur images. It is also a lot safer for our staff not to be exposed to radiation constantly.
