While some problems can be diagnosed by a physical examination only, in many cases some form of imaging is essential, to see what is happening internally.
Here at Merewether Veterinary Hospital we are equipped with modern digital x-ray facilities which allow us to obtain high quality images of the bones or soft tissues of your pet. These images are available in an instant for us to view and interpret, in order to decide on the right treatment plan for your pet.
We also have an ultrasound machine. Ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses high- frequency sound waves to create images of structures within the body. This enables us to gain more detail about the structure of organs inside the body, and detect abnormalities.
Sometimes when combined, x-ray and ultrasound can be extremely useful for diagnosing disease conditions in your pet.
