Why Choose Digital X-Rays?

Enhanced Image Quality

Digital X-rays produce clearer, more detailed images compared to traditional X-ray films. This superior image quality enables our veterinarians to make more accurate diagnoses and develop effective treatment plans.

Faster Results

With digital X-rays, the images are available almost immediately after being taken. This rapid turnaround time is crucial for prompt diagnosis and treatment, especially in emergency situations.

Reduced Radiation Exposure

Digital X-ray technology requires significantly less radiation to produce an image which is safer for your pet and our staff.

Easy Sharing and Storage

Digital images can be easily shared with specialists or other veterinary professionals if a second opinion or additional expertise is needed. They can also be stored electronically, which is better for the environment and ensures that your pet’s records are always accessible.

Frequently asked questions

Are digital X-rays safe?

Yes, digital X-rays are very safe. The amount of radiation exposure is significantly lower compared to traditional X-rays, making it a safe diagnostic tool. 

Does my pet need to be sedated for an X-ray?

Sedation is not always necessary but may be used to ensure your pet remains still during the procedure for clear images. We assess each case individually and prioritise your pet’s comfort and safety.

How long does it take to get the results?

Digital X-ray images are available almost immediately. Our veterinarians will review the images and discuss the findings with you during your visit.

How should I prepare my pet for an X-ray?

Generally, no special preparation is needed. However, we may ask you to fast your pet if sedation is anticipated. We will provide specific instructions based on your pet’s needs.

What is the cost of a digital X-ray?

The cost can vary depending on the specific area being imaged and whether sedation is required. We strive to provide transparent pricing and will discuss all costs with you upfront.
