Compassionate pet care on the ridge.

When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to have the latest diagnostic equipment, including digital imaging devices that provide a clear picture of the problem. 

Radiograph of canine pelvis


The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints, hip dysplasia and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs, such as gastrointestinal blockages, heart enlargement, lung abnormalities, spleen, liver and kidney size, etc.

Occasionally, if the pet is painful or requires pre-surgical radiographs of a specific nature, we will use sedation as a method of pain management and relaxation so that we get the best images possible of the problem area. 

Dental Radiographs

Dental radiographs are a diagnostic tool that help us to address dental problems that are unable to be seen during a physical exam. Dental x-rays give us an overall view of the health of the teeth, surrounding bone in the jaw and muzzle, and the roots of the teeth. Tooth root abscesses lead to a necessary extraction of the tooth and can be identified easily with an x-ray of the area.
