Pet Imaging

Veterinary X-Ray (Radiography)

Radiology is a non-painful, non-invasive diagnostic tool that can be extremely useful when dealing with sick or injured animals. Our in-house pet imaging equipment allows us to quickly evaluate your pet to help determine the cause of his or her individual problem. In a matter of minutes, we are able to diagnose numerous conditions and disease processes such as:

  • Gastrointestinal foreign object obstructions
  • Fractures
  • Hip or Elbow Dysplasia
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Neoplastic processes or cancer
  • Pregnancy
  • Heart Failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Abdominal Cavity Infections
  • Megaesophagus

We have weekly rounds with a board certified radiologist to insure our veterinarians make the most accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for your pet.

Veterinary Ultrasound

Every week, Central Houston Animal Hospital has an in-house board certified radiologist to perform our animal ultrasounds. This non-invsive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. We also have the capability for ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirates; biopsies; thoracocentesis; abdominocentesis and cystocentesis. Pregnancy exams are also available. With veterinary ultrasound, we can diagnose many animal diseases such as:

  • Neoplasia or cancer
  • Cushings Disease
  • Heart Failure
  • Pleural effusion
  • Abdominal effusion
  • Lung torsion
  • Foreign objects
  • Cholangiohepatitis
  • Portosystemic Shunts
