Why does my pet need radiographs?

Radiographs (or x-rays as they are commonly called) are a very important tool to help us reach a definitive diagnosis in animals, particularly for conditions involving bones. At Narwee Veterinary Hospital our veterinarians will discuss your pet’s case and conduct a thorough physical examination to determine if your pet requires radiographs.

Our digital equipment allows us to immediately have the x-ray up on our computer screen for enhancement and magnification. We often need several x-rays from different angles of joints to highlight problem areas.

When your pet comes for their x-rays

Usually animals are required to be sedated or anaesthetised to take x rays as they need to be extremely still to take the radiograph.  Most of our patients are admitted into hospital for the day, unless it is an emergency and we’ll take the radiographs immediately.

Once the radiographs have been taken we will give you a call or book an appointment for our veterinarians to show you the images and to discuss the diagnosis and treatment plan for your pet.
