Digital X Rays





Digital X-Rays


"I recommend yearly X-rays of the heart and bones so that we can effectively prevent heart disease and arthritis." -Dr. Josh Cope

At Premier Vet Care Animal Clinic, we are very pleased to have a state-of-the-art digital X-ray processing unit! Digital X-rays provide a host of benefits for a veterinary practice and its patients. They are much faster, far safer, easier to share, and provide superior results in comparison to traditional film X-rays.

A lot of time is saved by digital radiography since we bypass the chemical processing step that is necessary when taking X-rays on film. One of the greatest benefits of digital X-rays is the increased safety it provides for patients and staff members alike. Less radiation is used to produce a digital X-ray image than is used in producing an X-ray image on film. Less exposure to radiation translates to a safer experience for our patients and a less hazardous work environment for our staff. Since digital X-rays allow us to skip the chemical processing step that is a necessary part of developing X-rays on film, there is a huge reduction in chemical usage and hazardous material waste. This means that digital X-rays are not only safer for our patients and our staff, but also for our natural environment as well.

Sharing X-rays is important when seeking specialist consultations. Digital X-ray files make this a snap, providing critical information more quickly in emergency cases.

Digital X-ray gives us an image quality far superior to traditional film. The diagnostic power of digital X-ray allows us to discover disease sooner and identify problems with greater accuracy.With digital X-ray, we now have the ability to apply special image processing techniques that can enhance the overall display of the image. This means that Dr. Joshcan review X-ray images with our clients and show and explain their findings with greater ease.

We are proud to be able to offer digital X-ray services to our clients! So, next time your canine or feline companion needs to have an X-ray done, rest assured that we offer nothing but the best!

Benefits of Digital Radiography in Large Dogs:

-Diagnosing congenital hip dyplasia. Dr. Josh recommends X-raying all large breed dogs at 2 years of age even if clinical signs are not evident yet. If hip dysplasia is evident at 2 years, you can start joint supplementation so that the disease can be slowed down and your large dog can walk better later in life.Fracture
-Diagnosing gastric dilatation volvulus "when the stomach flips". This is life threatening and requires emergency surgery. In order to prevent this from happening, Dr. Josh recommends a gastropexy "stomach tacking" when all large breed dogs are spayed or neutered.
