Round Rock Vet Radiology Services
Radiology is an important part of veterinary medicine. Various diagnostic tools can help us diagnose medical conditions in your companion and determine any surgical needs your pet may have. Among the radiology services we provide are:
More popularly known as X-rays, radiography uses a small amount of electromagnetic radiation to snap a photograph of your pet’s internal functions.
Using this photo, your veterinarian can get a look at the organs and bones to check for internal issues. The procedure is quite safe when checking for trauma, evaluating broken bones, looking for foreign objects, or performing dental exams. We may need to anesthetize your pet to ensure they stay still during this process.
The process of ultrasound makes use of sound waves to provide images in real-time. This allows the vet to view different internal areas and move the image around. This procedure is good for checking heart function and diagnosing pregnancies. The procedure is noninvasive and painless. Your pet will be awake throughout the procedure.
Animal Care Clinic also has an in-house lab for diagnostic testing. This can greatly speed up the results of any tests and results in more effective treatment and diagnosis of problems. Our lab uses advanced testing techniques to deliver top-notch diagnostic results.
