Veterinary diagnostic imaging is used to discover internal disease or injury. Forrest Avenue Animal Hospital employs advanced imaging technologies, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.
Radiographs, or X-rays, use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease. All X-rays are sent to a board-certified radiologist for review.

Orthopedic radiographs and contrast studies require the patient to remain completely still to work correctly, necessitating sedation in most cases. Some specialized procedures may require anesthesia. The duration of sedation or anesthesia is usually short and patient recovery is swift.
