Our digital radiography suite allows us to diagnose a variety of conditions - broken bones, heart disease, pneumonia, intestinal foreign bodies, bladder stones - just to name a few. Our state-of-the-art system enables us to capture the views required and then make adjustments to the image. This minimizes the need for retakes, thus minimizing radiation exposure.
We are able to electronically submit our radiographs to a board-certified veterinary radiologist for review. This service is a valuable tool for difficult or unusual cases, and can aid the veterinarian in diagnosing your pet.
In the event your pet needs to be referred to a specialist, we can send digital copies of the x-rays with you or, in some cases, directly to the referral center.
Because a large portion of each tooth is below the gum line, dental radiography is an invaluable tool in evaluating your pet’s oral health.
Dental radiographs can reveal dental disease (also called periodontal disease) that cannot otherwise be appreciated visually. Once identified, treatment can be initiated. Early treatment of periodontal disease can improve your pet’s overall health and quality of life because dental issues can be a source of pain and discomfort as well as infection, both locally and in other areas of the body (heart valves, liver, and kidneys).
Ringgold Animal Hospital offers digital dental radiography using state-of-the-art equipment. Digital dental radiography allows our staff to take dental radiographs quickly and efficiently, with minimal radiation exposure. Your pet is anesthetized and closely monitored throughout the entire procedure.
