To better serve our clients and their pets, we offer on-site digital radiology services that allow us to detect, diagnose, and treat a wide range of problems and abnormalities. The goal of El Dorado Animal Hospital is to provide exceptional veterinary care for dogs and cats, and our on-site radiology capabilities help us do just that. Our technical staff members are trained in radiology equipment positioning and operation to provide the clearest x-ray images with minimal pet stress and discomfort. We are one of the few veterinary practices in Fountain Hills with on-site fully digital radiology equipment, which means your pet will receive the care she needs as quickly as possible to minimize future complications.
Radiographs are extremely helpful in detecting broken bones and changes in organs that may indicate tumors, heart disease, obstructions, and other internal medical problems. We also provide on-site dental radiology services to detect problems with your pet’s teeth and bone that may be hidden below the gum line and out of range for normal visual evaluations.
Our state-of-the-art digital animal radiology equipment allows us to:
Although our veterinarians and technical staff are skilled at reading x-rays, there may be cases when the results need to be viewed by a specialist to make a diagnosis. Because we use digital radiology, we are able to send high-quality images to specialists anywhere in the world so we can develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your pet as quickly as possible.
Depending on the nature of your pet’s injuries or the images that need to be captured, your pet may need to be sedated. Contrast studies, for example, require that your pet keeps absolutely still. Sedation may also be recommended if your pet suffers from severe anxiety to help keep him calm and comfortable during the x-ray scan. Modern anesthesia drugs wear off quickly so your pet can recover and return to normal soon after we capture the images we need to make a diagnosis.
If you’re concerned that your pet is suffering from any internal health problems or physical injuries, contact El Dorado Animal Hospital at (480) 837-0800 to schedule a radiology appointment today. be sure to check out our services page to learn about all of the pet wellness services we provide in addition to on-site radiography.
