VCA Veterinary Hospital of Leon Springs


We are able to shoot, develop and interpret x-rays here within our own hospital!

Sometimes, your veterinarian may recommend radiographic images to be taken of your pet, in order to help assess their internal health. Here at the hospital, we are equipped with a radiology room specially designed for the shooting and processing of radiographic films. In some cases, sedation is recommended to keep patients comfortable while the images are being shot. After the images are processed, our doctors are able to review and interpret the results. Each of our exam rooms is equipped with an x-ray viewer so that the doctors are able to discuss the x-rays with you at your appointment.

Some of the diseases X-Rays can help to diagnose include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures in the Bone
  • Tumors and other forms of Cancer
  • Heart Enlargement and Congestive Heart Failure
  • Bladder and Kidney Stones
  • Stomach or Intestinal Foreign Bodies
  • Pneumonia
  • Lung Diseases

Radiographic imaging is an important tool in giving the doctors an overall view of your pet’s health, and should be integrated into your senior pet’s semi-annual wellness exam. If you have any questions about radiology and your pet, feel free to speak with one of our doctors or technicians!
