Veterinarians must depend heavily on diagnostic equipment to identify health issues in their patients, as pets are unable to communicate their pain to us. For this reason, Madisonville Animal Hospital has invested in one of the most advance digital radiography (X-ray) systems available in veterinary medicine.
Digital x-ray units are much more advanced than older systems that required chemicals and time to develop. The x-ray at Madisonville produces precise and clear images in seconds, allowing for immediate treatment if necessary. These digital x-ray images can also be emailed, saving valuable time in the rare event that a veterinary radiologist needs to be consulted in a case. Finally, our system is much more environmentally friendly than older units which require chemicals in order to process film.
