Radiology (digital)

Here at Alexander Equine Veterinary Services, we are proud to offer equine digital radiology.

Our practice is dedicated to staying up to date with the newest advances in veterinary medicine. We strive to diagnose and treat your horse the easiest way possible.

For this reason, we use digital radiology, which is the best way to get quality x-rays quickly and efficiently. Your horse’s digital images are ready almost instantly for us to view. Also, instead of taking film after film to adjust the settings, we can simply adjust the contrast on the computer. This means that we can take fewer films and not expose your horse to as much radiation.

Digital x-rays are great for diagnosing lameness in horses. We can quickly and efficiently diagnose your horse, whether he or she is suffering from laminitis, a broken bone, or anything else.
