Dog X-Rays Brisbane

Does Your Pup Need An X-Ray?

We all want to ensure that our furry friends receive the best possible care when they’re feeling unwell. However, determining the underlying cause of your dog’s symptoms can be challenging, especially without an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis. We prioritise the prompt and precise diagnosis of your canine companion’s health concerns, and we achieve this through the use of advanced dog x-ray technology. By producing clear and accurate images of your dog’s internal structures, we can identify any potential health issues that may be affecting your pet, and develop a tailored treatment plan. Some of the health issues that can be detected through diagnostic imaging and x-rays include: 

What We Can Diagnose, Treat & Maintain With X-rays

Bone Fractures

X-rays are an invaluable tool for diagnosing and treating bone fractures in dogs, allowing us to accurately identify the location and severity of the fracture.

Joint & Skeletal Issues

Joint and skeletal issues such as hip dysplasia and arthiritis can be accurately diagnosed through x-rays, enabling us to develop a tailored treatment plan that helps to improve your pet's mobility and quality of life.

Heart Conditions

Dogs with heart conditions, whether developed or congenital, can be difficult to diagnose without an x-ray. Heart disease is a catch-all term used to represent a number of issues that affects your cat’s heart or blood vessels and interferes with their normal functions.

Bladder Stones

Diagnostic imaging and x-rays can help identify the presence and location of bladder stones in dogs, which can cause discomfort and lead to urinary tract infections if left untreated.

Respiratory Conditions

Respiratory diseases are common in some dogs and can be diagnosed and confirmed via x-ray. By looking at the lungs and heart, our vets can check for infections, pneumonia, and other respiratory conditions.

Intestinal Obstructions

For pets who have eaten or swallowed something they should not have, x-rays can identify the location and severity of the blockage and provide prompt treatment to relieve your pet's discomfort and prevent further complications.

Dental Issues

Dental issues such as tooth decay and periodontal disease can be detected through dental radiographs, enabling us to provide targeted treatment that improves your pet's oral health and overall wellbeing.

Internal Trauma

After an accident, it is vital to bring your dog in for x-rays to rule out internal injuries and improve their chances of a full recovery. Many times, these types of injuries are not visible on the outside and can only be detected with imaging.

What To Expect In A Dog X-Ray

Understanding the Imaging Process

At The House Call Vet, we understand that taking your furry companion to the vet can be stressful, especially when they’re in pain or need emergency care. That’s why we’ve made our x-ray process as seamless and stress-free as possible, while ensuring your pet receives the best possible care.

During the x-ray process, our experienced team will take a detailed medical history and perform a physical examination on your dog.

Then, our experienced team will gently position your dog on the imaging table to obtain the clearest image possible.

While most dogs can remain awake during the x-ray process, we may administer anesthesia to pets who need to be in a complicated position, are in pain or are aggressive, to ensure their comfort and safety.

Our innovative house call service is complemented by state-of-the-art clinics equipped with the leading technology that allows us to diagnose and treat your pet’s condition quickly and accurately.

We’re dedicated to providing exceptional care to your beloved pet in a stress-free environment. To learn more about our radiology service or to book an appointment, get in touch with us today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Have another question? Get in touch with The House Call Vet today and our team of experts can assist.

Yes. X-rays are safe for your dogs. If you are concerned about the use of diagnostic imaging and your dogs’s health, be sure to speak to our veterinarians. We can help you better understand the X-ray process.

X-rays can help vets to get a view of your pet’s bones, tissues, and internal organs so that they can diagnose issues such as broken bones, bladder stones, swallowing foreign objects, and more. They are also used to diagnose tumours and enlarged organs. Similarly, they can help owners prepare for the birth of puppies and decide whether a c-section may be required. 

Typically there is no preparation for x-rays. However, we will examine you pet and then determine if diagnostic imaging is needed.

Sedation is sometimes required in order to get a clear X-ray. If your dog is calm, not in too much pain, and able to lay in a comfortable position while the X-ray is being taken, sedation will not be necessary. However, if they are moving too much or are in pain, sedation will be administered to ensure a clean and clear image.
