Radiography is an extremely helpful diagnostic tool used to determine disease or injuries in the chest, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system instead of performing invasive tests or procedures. Using this technology, the doctors at Scottsboro Pet Care can identify fractures, locate foreign bodies, discover masses such as tumors, measure organ size, and diagnose pneumonia as well as pregnancy. Having this service in-house enables us to discover your pet’s problem and start the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

Radiography is a painless procedure, however, sedation is often recommended to lower your pet’s anxiety and stress level, to prevent having to take repeat x-rays because of movement, and to control pain associated with manipulating pets that may have fractures or arthritis.
