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 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 a 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.
