Radiology refers to the study of xrays. At The Causeway Veterinary Clinic we take all our own xrays on site, meaning that your pet does not have to be transferred to an external facility to have images taken. Our clinic is well equipped with two xray machines and a DR digital image processor. This allows us to read the image quickly and make a diagnosis within seconds which is particularly important in emergency cases. In the veterinary field we often have to anaesthetise our patients to take xrays. This keeps them comfortable during the imaging process and allows us to obtain motionless images
Unfortunately there are no veterinary specialist radiology facilities in the country so if it is felt that your pet would benefit from the input from a veterinary specialist The Causeway Veterinary Clinic has an ongoing relationship with a specialist facility in Melbourne. Your pets xrays can be forwarded to one of the specialists for comment. This arrangement is free of charge for our clients.
Ultrasound is a non-invasive means of imaging your pet’s internal soft tissue structures and organs. It can be particularly useful in examining the abdominal organs such as the liver, spleen, gastro intestinal tract, uterus, kidneys and bladder. At The Causeway veterinary Clinic we have a state of the art, high image quality Ultrasound machine similar to those used in human referral ultrasound facilities.
