Radiography is an important part of diagnostic imaging in veterinary medicine. Our radiology service caters for all of your small animal friends.

  • Orthopaedic; lameness, fractures or deformities
  • Assessing the abdomen; bloat, pain, vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Viewing tumours, cysts or stones
  • Diagnosing dental problems, such as abscesses and fractures
  • Viewing/ diagnosing conditions that effect vital organs such as; heart, lungs or liver

We can also use the ultrasound scan to check if a dog or cat is pregnant, we can perform the scan during a normal consultation. Generally speaking, ultrasound is the best, way to evaluate fluid-filled and soft tissue organs in pets, this is non-invasive and is not painful. This means we can complete the scan without the need to give anaesthetic, however some very anxious pets may need a light sedative.

  • Vomiting
