Our Mobile Veterinarian Offers Digital X-rays
Digital x-rays are the latest technology and allow The Pets Mobile Vet to diagnose many conditions that could arise with your pet. If you are in the Cumberland, ME, area, or surrounding cities, our mobile veterinarian can come to you with all the services of a traditional animal hospital.
How Digital X-Rays Can Help Your Pet
Digital x-rays use an electronic sensor to reveal the structures inside the body like bones, organs, and joints. Digital x-rays can also show foreign objects and obstructions and can be used to check for masses and cancer in areas like the lungs. Unlike traditional x-rays that must be developed in a dark room, digital x-rays provide the images in a matter of seconds, which gives our veterinarian answers to the problem at hand.
One of the best advantages of using digital x-rays instead of traditional x-ray equipment is the significantly lower exposure to radiation. Radiation is a very common concern when anyone thinks of having x-rays used on a human or a pet’s body. The fact of the matter is, digital x-rays require very low amounts of radiation and are considered significantly safer than x-ray equipment used in the past. Of course, our vet will still take care and precautions to ensure that your pet is safe during the testing procedure.
One of the most common uses for digital x-rays involves pet dentistry. We all know that we should maintain our furry friend’s teeth to the best of our abilities but sometimes it’s hard to manage for a variety of reasons. Digital x-rays are a very valuable tool when your pet has dental issues and our vet needs to look under the gum line.
There is no preparation needed for a pet x-ray. With the click of a button, the x-rays can be reviewed by a board-certified radiologist, cardiologist, or orthopedic surgeon. Your animal won't require sedation if he or she can remain still for the procedure.
