X-rays, or radiographs, are one of the most common diagnostic procedures done at Vernon Hills Animal Hospital. Most x-rays can be taken while a pet is awake, but some procedures, such as dental and hip x-rays, require anesthesia. X-rays are painless and give us valuable information. We have digital radiography in our facility.
Digital dental x-rays are very useful in determining things such as if your pet has any abscessed teeth or broken roots. They allow us to detect diseased teeth that may appear normal, or treat and often save obviously diseased teeth.
