Compassionate Veterinary Care for Dogs & Cats in Bowling Green, KY


A Picture of Pet Health

Your dog jumped off your patio, and now you think they might have a broken bone. You can’t find your cat’s favorite toy, but now they’re wheezing, and you’re afraid they may have swallowed it. When you suspect something is wrong with your pet, you don’t want to wait to see if they magically improve. We offer digital pet X-rays at Valley Lyons Veterinary Hospital so your veterinarian can quickly diagnose issues and start treatment.

Looking Inside from the Outside

X-ray imaging, or radiography, is a widely used diagnostic tool in the veterinary field for uncovering various health issues. At Valley Lyons Veterinary Hospital in Newhall, we use digital pet X-rays because they provide results more quickly than their film counterparts. Our experienced team can X-ray your beloved companion in a matter of minutes, so your veterinarian has results in hand right away.

There are many uses for pet X-rays, but some of the common conditions that we use X-rays to diagnose are:

  • Bone fractures
  • Bone dislocations
  • Arthritis
  • Joint abnormalities
  • Foreign body ingestion
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Pneumonia
  • Lung tumors
  • Heart enlargement

The above is not a complete list, and your veterinarian will suggest X-rays if they believe that radiography is the right tool to uncover the truth of your pet’s injury or health condition.

Digital Pet X-Rays: Your Vet’s Best Friend

Digital pet X-rays are among the most valuable diagnostic tools for veterinarians, alongside standard diagnostics like pet labwork. What makes them so useful for our Valley Lyons Veterinary Hospital team?

  • Accurate Detail: X-ray imagery provides incredible detail about the inside structure of your pet, allowing your veterinarian to get a full visual of hard tissues such as bones (or objects that don’t belong!).

  • Non-Invasive & Pain-Free: To take a radiograph of your pet, they just need to lay comfortably on a raised table—no invasive procedures are required. Since X-rays are non-invasive, we rarely need to sedate your companion.

  • Versatility: Pet X-rays aren’t used to diagnose a single potential disease but rather many health concerns, from injuries to GI issues.

  • Immediate Results: Digital pet X-rays don’t take time to develop, so your veterinarian can view them immediately and start treatment.
