Radiology – or X-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. They provide a still picture of the internal structures in our pets.
We have the latest technology in radiology, an Eklin digital radiography system. Digital radiographs can be taken quickly and accurately. They can be burned onto a CD or emailed to referral centers.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. It is commonly used to evaluate bladder conditions such as cystitis, stones and to obtain guided sterile samples of urine. You may want to have an ultrasound performed on your older dog or cat to evaluate the size, shape and consistency of the abdominal organs in case there are early signs of tumors or disease.
Companion Laser Therapy
The Companion Therapy Laser has been part of pain management and healing at Pet Dominion in Rockville, MD for several years. It is a dual beam class IV laser that uses gentle therapeutic laser light to increase cellular energy and health to a damaged area. This dramatically speeds healing time and reduces pain and swelling.
This laser is used successfully in the management of chronic pain and stiffness due to arthritis or joint injury. Our vets recommend laser therapy following routine surgeries such as spays and neuters as well as most other soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. We can also use it following the extraction of a tooth. The laser stimulates the immune system, nerve regeneration, and cell reproduction and growth. It is non-invasive, painless and has no side effects. Each treatment lasts between 3 and 8 minutes.
