X-rays are a non-invasive diagnostic tool which has many uses in the veterinary world. The most common use for an x-ray is to examine bones for fractures, arthritis or dysplasia (most commonly hip or elbow dysplasia).
They can also be used to examine the lungs and heart if your pet has coughing, fainting or cannot tolerate exercise any more.
An abdominal x-ray can also help to determine whether your dog's vomiting or not wanting to eat could be explained by an intestinal blockage (often seen in puppies who like to chew indiscriminately!). Having completed memberships Cammy can review those tricky X-rays when things just aren't right!
