Radiographs or X-rays are the most common forms of diagnostic imaging offered in a veterinary hospital. They are an important tool for identifying internal abnormalities, such as a fracture or organ enlargement. They are also essential in assessing problems like dental disease in rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas or egg laying problems in birds. Reducing stress is important for prey species especially when in the hospital so to minimize fear and anxiety during diagnostic imaging procedures we offer sedation and anesthesia to help make the process of diagnosing your pet's problem as stress free as possible. Safety is of the utmost importance to us at MAEVC so pets are closely monitored while undergoing any procedure and through the recovery process until they are ready to go home.
We offer both sedation and gas anesthesia to make this process as stress-free as possible for your pet and in order to obtain the best quality radiographs. Maryland Avian & Exotic Veterinary Care wants the best for your pet so we routinely have radiographs reviewed by board-certified radiologists.
