Digital X-Rays

From broken bones to swallowed socks, radiography is often used to help diagnose your furry friend's trouble. At Caring Paws Animal Hospital, we use cutting-edge digital radiology equipment to deliver a crystal-clear image.

Accurate radiographic interpretation is essential in determining the best treatment plan for your pet. These high quality images can sometimes help us avoid surgery, thereby sparing your pet the unnecessary discomfort and you the unnecessary expense.

Not only do we use the best equipment, we utilize secondary validation and interpretation as well as a board-certified radiologist's opinion if necessary.


Pet diagnostic equipment

Ultrasounds can help us diagnose a myriad of conditions, including heart disease, cancer, and urinary issues. They allow us to image the internal structures of organs to better identify the problem and thereby create an effective treatment plan for your pet.

Additionally, ultrasound-guided biopsy provides a nonsurgical solution to tissue sample collection, which allows us to effectively diagnose your pet's condition.

When needed, we can call in a board certified ultrasonographer for more complex ultrasound procedures.

We're pleased to offer our pet families the advantages of our on-site, advanced diagnostic tools. Please contact us if you have any questions about our testing capabilities.

“Dr Danielson and his team are so wonderful. I met them when I had to put down one of my cats. I could not have asked for a more caring or compassionate vet or team to support us as we said our goodbyes. As a minister and a former chaplain, I’ve seen the spectrum of “bedside manner” practices, and Dr D and his team are as good as it gets.”

“We wouldn’t take our 6 dogs and 2 cats to anyone else. We trust Dr Danielson with our fur babies completely. He always goes above and beyond and has brought many of our rescued pets through some very tough sicknesses. He is genuinely compassionate and, together with his family, volunteers his very limited free time to help at an animal shelter. Every animal is treated as though they are his own.”
— Arthur
“We followed Dr. Danielson here. He's just that good. He listens, he's amazing at troubleshooting, and he adores animals. His staff is top notch too. Finally, although I have a dog, I have heard that Dr. Danielson will try to help just about any kind of an animal who is in need if he can. That speaks volumes.”
