Why Use Digital Radiography
At Mercer and Hughes we prefer to use digital radiography over traditional X-Rays because Digital X-Rays are quicker.
As a result your pet doesn’t have to be under sedation or general anaesthetic as long and they give a better image so we can detect problems more easily.
Uses of Digital Radiography
Has Your Pet Swallowed Something it Shouldn’t?
Contrast media such as barium can highlight problems in the internal organs such as stomach and intestines.
This would allow us to see if a pet has swallowed a foreign object and it has lodged in the intestinal tract.
