Digital X-ray facilities for pets in Rutherglen
Digital x-ray is a non-invasive way to capture instant visuals of an animal’s internal tissues, bones, and organs, and an excellent diagnostic aid to our experienced veterinary surgeons.
Being able to see inside a pet’s body can be crucial to gaining the correct diagnosis and treatment plan, especially as animals can’t tell us where it hurts or how they feel.
At the Avenues Veterinary Centre in Rutherglen, our vets will perform digital x-rays under light sedation, or general anaesthetic when appropriate so they can get a good quality digital image from a completely still patient. We will discuss this with you during your consultation.
Digital x-rays make for easier referrals
A key advantage of using digital over traditional x-rays is the ability to share x-ray images with specialists by email. This enables our vets to refer the x-rays, without necessarily needing to refer your pet, which can result in quicker diagnosis of some ailments that require a specialist opinion.
A full suite of diagnostic equipment
As well as our digital x-ray machine, the team at Avenues Veterinary Centre may also utilise our onsite ultrasound equipment and laboratory facilities to ensure a swift and accurate diagnosis so that treatment can commence as soon as possible.
Be prepared for unexpected treatment costs
Digital x-rays and other diagnostic tools enable our vets to quickly diagnose and treat injuries and illnesses, which can be crucial in an emergency situation. This is why we strongly recommend taking out Pet Insurance to help you cover the cost of unexpected veterinary treatment (always read your pet insurance policy terms & conditions).
