Pet Digital X-ray

When it comes to your pet’s health, we want to ensure we provide them with accurate diagnoses, but sometimes an external physical examination is not enough. At Countryside Animal Hospital, we utilize digital x-ray technology for further testing. 


When it comes to your pet’s health, we want to ensure we provide them with accurate diagnoses, but sometimes an external physical examination is not enough. Using cutting-edge digital imaging equipment, your veterinarian can take a look at what is going on internally to better diagnose illnesses, injuries, and other issues.

At Countryside Animal Hospital, you can rest assured that we have the technology and the expertise to get to the bottom of the symptoms your dog or cat is displaying.

Sometimes, a situation will arise that warrants the use of x-rays for your pet. At Countryside Animal Hospital, we are proud to offer digital x-rays, using cutting-edge technology to ensure that we can diagnose with accuracy. Modern digital radiography technology has proven to be essential when it comes to the diagnosis of a variety of injuries and conditions for pets. Sometimes, your pet may have an issue that a simple physical external exam cannot diagnose. In this case, our radiology equipment allows your veterinarian in Fort Collins to see what is going on with your pet internally in a nonevasive way.


Because we use digital x-rays at Countryside Animal Hospital, we are able to more accurately and quickly diagnose conditions. X-rays are sent to a computer once they are taken, and we gain insight into the health of your pet within hours. You can even have access to your pet’s digital x-ray for your own records. Additionally, digital x-rays are significantly clearer than film x-rays, making it easier for your vet to accurately diagnose the issue. Finally, digital x-rays are a more environmentally friendly type of radiology because there are no chemicals involved.


X-rays can be used to diagnose a variety of health conditions. Some examples include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Bladder stones
  • Tumors
  • Heart issues
  • Stomach problems
  • Intestinal issues
  • Reproductive or urinary problems
  • Foreign objects that have been swallowed


X-rays are a completely painless procedure. If your pet is calm and cooperative, we will not even need to sedate them. If your dog or cat has anxiety issues, a sedative or general anesthesia may be administered to allow them to relax.

Countryside Animal Hospital is aware that when your pet needs a digital x-ray, it can be a scary process for you. While you may be worried for your dog or cat, we can assure you that they are in good hands. Because of the incredible advancements of recent technology, you don’t have to wonder whether you are doing what is best for your pet.
