Radiographs (X-ray)

Good Shepherd Pet Hospital utilizes advanced, state-of-the-art digital radiology equipment to help in the diagnosis and management of diseases. Radiographs are a quick and safe way to evaluate your pet’s bones and internal organs. It’s completely non-invasive and painless, and it may be performed without sedation.

Dental Radiographs (Dental X-ray)

Good Shepherd Pet Hospital offers dental radiographs (X-rays) as part of our dental care services. Dental radiology equipment allows us to view structures that lie below the gum line.

The location of tooth root infections, root fractures, the extent of periodontal bone loss, the identification of bone lysis associated with oral tumors, and Jaw fractures can be identified using dental X-rays. Anesthesia is required for dental X-rays.

As a part of our excellence and compassionate care, we use the safest inhalational anesthetic Sevoflurane for faster, safer, and better quality compared with isoflurane. It allows very precise control of a pet’s anesthesia level. Since this anesthesia leaves the bloodstream very quickly, pets often experience a very quick recovery.


Ultrasound machines emit a special type of sound waves and, in return, generate an anatomic picture of your pet’s internal organs. By carefully evaluating these images, we can help diagnose many diseases. Short-acting sedation may be given to calm pets who are nervous, anxious, or painful.

Ultrasound Can Be Used to Identify Problems Involving Many Different Body Parts:

  • Abdomen: Intestinal foreign bodies, masses, portosystemic shunts, pancreatitis, bladder stones.
  • Chest: Mediastinal masses, pulmonary masses, pleural effusion.
  • Musculoskeletal: Joint/bone tumors, soft tissue/tendon injury.
  • Neck: Thyroid and salivary gland masses, abscesses.
