Our hospital can provide necessary x-rays to help diagnose many internal conditions as well as help identify and manage bone and joint conditions often during your consultation.

Radiographs taken of the hips at an early age can diagnose hip dysplasia and allow for preventative intervention before severe arthritis occurs prematurely in life. In older dogs, radiographs can help distinguish between hip, knee, or lower back pain when stiffness and weakness are noticed, allowing for proper and effective management of unnecessary pain and discomfort.
