At Forsyth Veterinary Hospital, we provide state-of-the-art equipment and technology to ensure proper diagnostics and treatment for your pet. When you visit your veterinary hospital in Winston-Salem, our team will provide an initial exam and may recommend digital x-rays to determine the cause of your animal’s pain.

When Can a Pet Scan Help?

We often recommend the use of a pet scan as a secondary step after a physical exam. This type of scan is non-invasive and doesn’t take more than a few minutes. In fact, your vet will have the information necessary to make a diagnosis or to create a treatment plan within just a few minutes of having the digital x-ray taken. When we need fast information, this is an obvious solution.

In addition, we will recommend this diagnostic tool before dog surgery or cat surgery. It allows us to create a surgical plan to ensure your pet remains safe. In addition, depending on your pet’s needs, we may recommend another set of digital x-rays after a pet surgery. Doing this gives us more information about how well the procedure worked.

When Can We Help You With Digital X-Rays?

We offer digital x-rays for a variety of reasons. They can be done before dog surgery or cat surgery for spaying and neutering. It may be necessary for senior pet care so we can see the structure of your pet’s bones and joints. It can also be helpful as a step in understanding the pain your animal feels so we can pursue the proper type of pain management. We use these scans for:

  • Diagnosing understanding health problems such as broken bones, hip-related complications
  • Determining the presence of foreign objects
  • Investigating masses or unknown structures
  • Preparation prior to and after pet surgery
  • Dental x-rays to check the health of your pet

Other reasons exist as well. Let your vet know about any concerns you have so we ca offer the most up to date treatment options available.
