Ajo Veterinary Clinic has excellent digital imaging facilities for both standard X-ray and dental X-ray. This allows on site diagnosis of many conditions. We have partnered with mobile specialists who have the ability to examine and perform ultrasounds, echocardiograms and endoscopy in the comfort of our clinic. If more advanced imaging such as a CT scan or MRI is needed, we can refer to local specialists. We have the ability to send any radiograph to a board certified radiologist for second opinions.
All dental cases have full mouth radiographs taken to assure that disease processes below the gum line aren’t missed and left untreated. This is the area were the worst problems develop. Especially dental abscesses which are very painful and often lead to blood borne infections that affect other organs. Undetected and untreated abscesses can lead to infections of the heart valves, kidneys and prostate. These complications can be life threatening.
