Pet Digital Radiology Veterinary Service in East Rockaway, NY
We can now manipulate the digital images that we take from a pet’s system to see what is wrong, thanks to advancements in digital X-ray technology.
What Is a Digital X-ray?
Digital radiology/radiography, also known as a digital X-ray, is an advanced diagnostic tool that is mainly used to virtually see your pet’s organs. This includes, but is not limited to, the cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and urinary systems. This is a non-invasive process that allows us to have a better look at your pet’s condition. With this non-invasive procedure, we can clearly see many issues and address them quickly.

- There Is Less Radiation Exposure Than With Film X-rays
- Digital Radiography Is Environmentally Friendly
Are X-rays Painful or Harmful for My Pet?
X-rays are a completely painless procedure. If your pet is calm and cooperative, we will not even need to sedate them. If your dog or cat has anxiety issues, a sedative or general anesthesia may be administered to allow them to relax.
Due to recent developments in modern technology, X-rays are safer than ever for pets and humans alike. Digital X-rays only expose your dog or cat to a small dose of radiation, which is completely harmless.
