Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology

Pet diagnostic imaging and radiology services play a significant role to meet the diagnostic needs of vets and their patients. In fact, this is an effective diagnostic tools available for our little pet friends. Just like any other imaging and radiology service, these tools also make use of radiations.

Hwy 401 Warden Pet Hospital Scarborough makes use of reliable pet imaging technology to diagnose internal health issues.

Diagnostic imaging and radiology services have three main aspects including:

  • Radiography – This is one of the greatest diagnostic tools available for our Pet Friends. X-rays are not just a tool to see bones. It is a tool required to see any change in size or shape of an abdominal organ, presence of any potential (metal) foreign body or obstruction (intestine or stomach), any changes or lesions in the lungs, heart or spine and other lesions. This tool requires the use of intense radiation and digital plate or conventional silver films to produce a black, grey or white opacities that our Veterinarian team interprets for a directed therapy. There are certain instances where we may have difficulty in interpretation. We seek specialized input from PetRays, a team of Board Certified Radiologists, that respond within a few hours with their interpretation. Most X-rays are performed by physical restraint but certain situations we need the Pet to be sedated or tranquilized (e.g. Hip x-rays for purpose of Hip Certification).
  • Ultrasound –  On site ultrasound facility is available. We have a team of experienced vets to provide this service to our valued clients in the clinic itself.

Imaging and radiology services are extremely crucial when there is a need to inspect the insides of the pet’s body. Such an inspection cannot be completed without the help of advanced imaging tools. Our entire veterinary team is compassionate when it comes to imaging because getting the right kind of images for proper analysis is extremely important. Sometimes, our vets may even sedate or tranquilize the pet to get a better image of the part of body which otherwise would have been tough to analyze.

We, at Hwy 401 Warden Pet Hospital, have new and sophisticated equipments to diagnose and treat your pets. Our vet team is skilled and experienced to handle almost any pet health problem.
