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.

Full Ultrasound Service

Our ultrasound equipment and staff skill levels mean we can offer a comprehensive range of ultrasound services, including full abdominal ultrasound, non-complicated echocardiography (heart scan) and ultrasound-guided nerve blocks.  We can also use ultrasound to help guide the sampling of urine from bladders, fluid from abdomens and chests, and get biopsies of specific organs.

Dental Digital Radiography (X-Rays)

Just like human dentists take x-rays of our mouths to assess the health of our teeth, your pet deserves the same level of treatment! It can be difficult to know what is happening to the roots of your pet’s teeth underneath their gums; dental radiographs allow us to check the health of the hidden part of your pet's teeth and diagnose bone loss, abscesses and fractures.

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.

Does my pet need to be sedated for X-rays or ultrasound?

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.
