X-Rays are a useful diagnostic tool commonly used in veterinary practices. They are used to view areas of the body that have contrasting densities. The size and shape of organs and bones, finding foreign objects, even evaluating the lungs and heart. You can use X-rays as part of a dental evaluation to determine root placement or jaw involvement. At Orillia and District Veterinary Services, we have our X-ray suite on site, and available for use when needed. Our Registered Veterinary Technicians are talented individuals highly trained to take effective and diagnostic images, all while comforting and ensuring your pet has the lowest stress level possible. Your trusted Veterinarian will then interpret the X-rays in a timely manner, and you will be shown the x-rays while having a discussion about what they mean to your pets case. This is a safe procedure which helps your trusted Veterinarian understand your pets condition more thoroughly.
