With digital radiology, our doctors can examine your dog or cat’s internal organs, as well as his or her cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. Our animal hospital uses digital radiology to assess your pet’s condition in greater detail compared to film radiology. Because digital x-rays have a higher image quality than film x-rays, we can provide you with more information and a more accurate diagnosis.
In addition to providing fast and accurate results, digital radiology is safer for your pet because of less time exposed to harmful radiation. Digital x-rays are also safer for the environment since there are no chemicals to contaminate the local water systems.
Boulder’s Natural Animal Hospital also uses digital x-ray technology for all of our dental procedures. With digital x-rays we can detect dental disease that is hidden below the gum surface, and check for other dental concerns such as unerupted or impacted adult teeth.
