Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology and Ultrasounds

Digital images, including ultrasounds, radiographs, MRIs, and CT scans are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs and cats. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, joint problems, tumors, brain abnormalities, and problems with the internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and bladder.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging involves using sound waves to create an image on a computer monitor. When a radiologist passes the wand over your pet's body it creates images of your pet's internal organs.  This form of technology helps diagnose soft tissue masses, foreign objects, fluid around organs, and cardiac disease.  We partner with board certified radiologists that will come to our practice to perform ultrasounds or we refer to local specialty clinics.  


The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints, and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs, like the heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys.

Diagnosing Your Pet’s Ailment or Injury

Our veterinary staff can rapidly diagnose your pet’s injury or condition via x-rays and ultrasound imaging. Once City Park Animal Clinic understands the depth of your pet’s illness or injury, a treatment plan will be developed in order to help your pet heal and restore your pet’s health. If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s health and his or her diagnosis, we would be happy to answer them and provide you with guidance in order to help make your pet comfortable during the healing process.
