Our veterinarians in Keizer, OR are ready at all times to perform x-rays on your pet should the need arise. X-rays are very helpful to look at both bone and soft tissue structures in the body. While they are less accurate than the more advanced tests of MRI and CT scanning, they are very affordable for sick or injured patients and can help your veterinarian narrow the list of possible problems when your loved one is sick. More advanced contrast studies can also be performed such as dye injections into the bladder to look for bladder stones, or dye into the stomach or intestines looking for ingested objects. Radiographs can be quickly performed and interpreted to help to get a quick assessment of your pet.
