Title: X-Rays And Dogs: What You Should Know

X-Rays And Dogs What You Should Know
By Vikki Harmonay
X-rays have been used to provide images of
everything from broken bones and tumors to
foreign objects and even bullets. These images
were developed to helps doctors decide on the
best course of treatment for their patients. But
when X-ray equipment was developed in 1895, they
probably didnt think theyd be used on
animals! Today vets use X-rays to help determine
the best course of treatment for dogs, cats,
birds, lizards and large animals like horses,
sheep, goats and more. If your pet suffers an
injury, falls ill or has unusual symptoms,
oftentimes and X-ray can help identify the
X-Rays And Dogs
Veterinarians use X-rays for a wide variety of
issues fractured and broken bones, intestinal
blockages, tumor identification, bladder stones
and even if a dog is suspected of swallowing a
foreign object. However, since plastic can be
difficult to see and small tumors can actually
blend in with surrounding tissue, sometimes a CT
Scan, ultrasound or MRI is warranted.
Whats The X-Ray Process For Dogs?
If your pet needs medical imaging, sometimes it
will need to be sedated, since it must be still
during the imaging process. To take the X-ray, a
cassette containing the film or sensor will be
placed underneath the area in question. The
cassette will protect the film or sensor from
scratches or damage. The X-ray equipment is
located on a mechanical arm. It will be
positioned over the area to be imaged. The X-ray
process takes 10 minutes or less as a rule.
However, sometimes a dog will need to be
repositioned as it is X-rayed. X-rays using film
can be processed in 30 minutes or less. Digital
X-rays are ready for viewing immediately.
The cost of X-rays varies. The more images that
are needed, the higher the cost. It costs more if
your pet needs an anesthetic.
Do You Need Medical Imaging Equipment For Your
Veterinary Practice?
There is a wide variety of used and refurbished
medical imaging equipment available on the
secondary market. Oftentimes, a refurbished or
used device can deliver all the performance you
need for your veterinary practice or urgent
animal care facility. The lower cost is great for
your bottom line, and youll still get a great
service warranty, as a rule. Talk to the experts
