At our facility, we are able to take and develop radiographs (aka X-Rays). X-Rays provide a means to view the insides our patients’ chests, abdomens, nasal cavities, and extremities. We utilize a digital radiography unit that allows us to immediately view and adjust images without having to repeat them. It also allows us to focus and highlight particular areas with ease. Having a digital radiography unit gives us the capacity to easily share your pet’s X-rays with specialists for consultation if needed.
In addition to X-rays, our doctors may recommend an ultrasound of the abdomen. Ultrasounds are performed at Milford Animal Hospital on Tuesdays by appointment only by Dr. Lisa Keno, a board-certified internal medicine specialist, and owner of Small Paws Internal Medicine. Because Dr. Keno travels to other hospitals on Tuesdays, it is difficult to know specifically when she will arrive. We kindly ask that you drop your pet off between 8:00 and 8:30 am on the day of the ultrasound. There is a possibility that your pet will spend a good portion of the day at our facility, depending on the caseload and arrival time of the specialist. For abdominal ultrasounds, we ask that you fast your animal for at least 12 hours prior to the ultrasound. When the ultrasound is completed, we will immediately call you with the results and to arrange a pick-up time.
For X-ray consultations, we utilize Dr. Patty Hogan of Coastal Veterinary Imaging. She is a board-certified veterinary radiologist. We are able to email images to her for interpretation if needed.
