Sedating dog for xrays

This test can be extremely useful for detecting changes in the shape, size or position of organs.

Unfortunately, important structures can sometimes blend together on X-rays, so this test does have limitations.

Dog X-rays can be used to diagnose a large number of problems and ailments with your dog.

The most obvious reason for giving your dog an x-ray are suspected bone fractures, but of course another common cause is X-raying the dogs stomach to see what is happening in their stomach after they have swallowed something unsuitable!

Drugs are selected based upon the health status of the patient, expected duration of the procedure, and the degree of pain anticipated.

There is no real contraindication to performing this test.

Premedicants are used to reduce anxiety, provide pre-emptive pain relief, reduce the amount of anesthetic induction and maintenance anesthesia required, produce some muscle relaxation, and help provide “smooth” inductions and recoveries.

Drugs with analgesic effects, such as opioids and drugs with sedative effects (including phenothiazine tranquilizers) are often included in a premedication scenario.

Ultra-modern, well equipped clinic, excellent veterinary care and not a hint of profiteering!
