DANFORTH VETERINARY CLINIC
Digital X-Ray Services
Digital X-Rays (radiographs) are an extremely important tool to aid in the diagnosis of many illnesses and injuries that our pets sustain.
At the Danforth Veterinary Clinic, we only use brand-new digital x-ray technology, allowing us to capture the most clear and precise images possible. The radiographs are taken on-site and can usually be interpreted by the doctor immediately, giving us valuable information within minutes.
Almost every internal structure can be evaluated using x-rays and we commonly use them to assess the heart, lungs and the abdominal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidney, bladder and gastro-intestinal tract. Radiographs are also necessary in the diagnosis of many orthopedic conditions involving the bones, such as fractures, arthritis and tumours.
Radiographs (x-rays) are non-invasive and extremely safe, even for very young or pregnant animals, and our well-trained staff will make sure the procedure is as gentle and comfortable as possible for your pet.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pet X-Ray (Radiographs) Services
Q: Does your facility offer x-rays on site?
A: Yes, we offer digital radiography (x-rays), meaning instant images and results.
Q: Will my pet need to be sedated?
A: In some cases, it may be required to sedate your pet for x-rays, as they need to be completely still for the images to develop clearly. Our veterinarian will discuss this option with you prior to the procedure.
Q: What if my pet needs an ultrasound?
A: If an ultrasound is required as the next diagnostic step, the doctor will help you set up an appointment at a special referral hospital and we will send your history and radiographs directly to the hospital for you.
