Taking x-rays of our feline patients gives us so much essential information to enable us to get right to work fixing their health problems. Without x-ray images, we would often have to rely on educated guesses and that’s just not acceptable.
For cats that have access to the outdoors, x-rays are especially vital because there’s no telling what they might have come in contact with. Even indoor cats can have injuries to joints or bones. But x-rays inform us about a lot more than just skeletal issues; we can detect organ enlargement, blockages and much more.
Just look at the diagnostic value of cat x-rays. With them, we can diagnose problems like these:
- Fluid in the lungs or chest cavity
- Enlarged heart, spleen, liver or kidneys
- Broken ribs
- Heart disease
Are you concerned that your cat suffers from any of these problems? Call us now for an appointment: (573) 888-2255.
