Radiography Suite

The digital radiography suite at Heathside is a fundamental diagnostic tool which our vets and nurses use every day to aid diagnosis of a multitude of problems ranging from broken bones to soft tissue tumours.

Our X-ray machine is a digital fixed machine similar to those seen in a human hospital. It is a powerful machine which allows our vets to take excellent radiographs of diagnostic quality which means that we are able to find out what is wrong with your pet quickly and start treatment straight away. Our X-rays are of a high enough quality that we are also able to send them away to referral practices for second opinions if our vets feel that this would be of value to the patient.

The table we place the animals on for their X-rays is the most modern available and is movable in all directions to avoid having to move the anaesthetised patient more than necessary.

Occasionally, we have to take X-rays of an animal who it would be unsafe to anaesthetise due to their condition, but normally, we would anaesthetise all our patients having   X-rays to ensure that we are able to take excellent quality pictures quickly and safely. X-rays can be dangerous for both pets and staff, so the fewer we have to take the better, and having our patients asleep makes sure that they will not move at a crucial time!
