DIGITAL X-RAYS

As a family-owned veterinary clinic in Colorado Springs, we understand how important it is to be sure our family members, especially pets, are well taken care of. If your pet is ill, injured, or just needs some preventative care then a digital X-ray is an incredible tool.  Digital X-rays provide an incredibly accurate, high-resolution snapshot of your pet’s internal structure. With the help of this technology, our team is able to utilize their expertise to provide a diagnosis quickly which allows us to begin a treatment plan.

WHAT WE CAN LEARN

Superior imaging allows for a more accurate and precise diagnosis than ever before. We are able to utilize digital X-rays for preventative wellness care, injury diagnosis  or confirmation of suspected illnesses. Digital X-rays provide the ability to learn a great deal about your pet.

WHY PONDEROSA

Digital X-rays are incredibly safe, painless, and non-invasive. We will work together to determine if a digital X-ray is the best option for your pet. During your appointment, one of our compassionate technicians will gently place your pet on the X-ray table. Your pet will only require light sedation or anesthesia if they are in too much pain to hold still or if the X-ray must be taken in an uncomfortable position. Our technician will then place the machine so that the X-ray beam targets only the point of interest. The image will be sent to us digitally so that we may review it thoroughly and discuss the most appropriate course of action with you.
