An x-ray is an important diagnostic tool used to visualize your cat’s skeletal structure, as well as soft tissues. It is used to get a picture of what is going on internally. A veterinarian may request an x-ray to look for a cause for your cat’s limping such as a fracture, dislocation or arthritis. He or she can examine the abdomen to assess the size and shape of the internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys and intestines. It is used to look at the abdomen for masses or foreign bodies causing obstructions. An x-ray can show stones in the bladder, kidneys or other parts of the urinary system. A chest x-ray can look at the size and shape of the heart to look for heart disease or lungs to look for pneumonia.
Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?
Unfortunately, we do not at this time offer dental x-rays.
