Pet Radiology & Digital X-Ray
Imagine how much easier it would be to manage the health of our pets if they could speak. That way they could simply come to us, explain what was bothering them and show us where it hurt. Then we’d know just what to check for and how to best handle the situation. Unfortunately, our animal friends don't communicate this way, so recognizing the signs of a health concern and addressing that concern in the most efficient and effective manner can be quite challenging at times.
That’s where pet radiology and digital x-ray come into play. These tools allow our experienced staff to take a look inside your pet’s body to learn exactly what’s happening below the surface. This provides for a more timely and accurate diagnosis, and subsequently a better outcome for your pet.
Grand Rapids Veterinary Clinic offers a broad range of routine and advanced diagnostic services to manage the ongoing health of our patients, including:
Radiographs -- we have a state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine that provides a radiographic image that can be viewed immediately on a high-resolution monitor. This makes the process of taking radiographs more efficient and therefore, less stressful to our patients, allowing us to evaluate your pet’s musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems from the smallest kitten to the largest dog.
Digital dental x-rays for pets -- Because digital x-rays create highly detailed images that provide diagnostic information about processes occurring below the gum line, dental x-rays can greatly enhance the quality of dental care your pet can receive. Digital dental x-rays allow for the most thorough and accurate imaging of your pet’s mouth and allow our experienced veterinarians to better assess the health and integrity of each tooth.
Advanced Diagnostics -- We have regular access to board-certified radiologists for consultations, ultrasonography, and echocardiography services, as well as other advanced diagnostics.
Whether it’s simple testing for routine wellness or part of a more in-depth diagnosis, Grand Rapids Veterinary Clinic is an excellent place for all of your cat or dog’s diagnostic work. Whatever may be ailing your four-legged friend, rest assured that we’ll get to the bottom of it once and get your family member back on the path to good health again.
