The Picture of Your Pet’s Health

Preventative care and early detection are key when it comes to making sure your pet stays healthy. One of the most powerful tools we have for that is diagnostic imaging, also known as radiograph (x-ray).

At Vista Pet Hospital, we perform both types of imaging in-house. These tests can show us skeletal fractures, some soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease. While x-rays are non-invasive, some do require that the patient remains completely still, so sedation and/or anesthesia of your pet may be necessary. However, the duration of sedation is usually short and patients tend to recover quickly. Our vets and trained staff will monitor your pet throughout the procedure and recovery.

More advanced radiology imaging services are available via referral from your Vista Pet Hospital veterinarian.
