Why Does a Pet Need an X-Ray?
Sometimes you can notice that your pet isn’t feeling well, but pets aren’t always able to tell you where they are in pain. X-rays are useful to a doctor to determine the difficulties your pet may be having. An X-ray can show foreign objects in the stomach, bladder stones, tumors, pregnancy, or cancer. They can also detect problems after an accident such as broken bones or air in the chest cavity.
An X-ray is also useful in determining what treatment is needed if a pet is having orthopedic or joint pain issues.
