There are many health conditions in pets that a physical exam alone can’t detect. That’s when pet diagnostic imaging comes into play. Diagnostics is a critical component of veterinary medicine, as it aids in the detection and treatment of various conditions and illnesses. Northern Pike Veterinary Hospital offers digital X-ray to examine pets internally. With our modern diagnostic imaging technology, we can identify conditions faster and with more accuracy, allowing pets to receive treatment sooner and more effectively.

Digital Pet X-rays

Our digital radiography unit is used to safely examine the bones, heart, abdomen, and lungs of pets, making it an essential diagnostic tool after an injury or health problem. X-rays can detect fractures, tumors, foreign bodies, and many other conditions. We also have a digital dental X-ray unit in our full-service dentistry suite that allows us to view below the gum line, where most dental problems are found. Unlike film radiography, digital radiography images are produced in seconds and can be easily enhanced on a computer screen. They are also much clearer than film images and do not require any harsh chemicals for production. In addition, the images can be shared digitally via email if necessary.

Please give us a call at 412-373-8580 if you think your companion can benefit from digital X-rays at Northern Pike Veterinary Hospital.
