X- RayMachine for Dogs
Many older pets are often affected by conditions of the spine and these conditions can often be shown on a series of x-rays. Mostly we use x-ray in the diagnosis of abnormalities of the bones such as fractures of bones and arthritis of the joints. X-rays are also used for viewing the shape of internal organs and x-rays of the chest can show up heart abnormalities and fluid or growths in the lungs. In the abdomen, internal masses, bowel obstructions and enlarged organs can be seen. :
The ECG generates a tracing, which measures the electrical activity in the heart which has a very specific form and can be assessed to see whether they are any abnormalities.
Here at dr.dog we regularly use ECG’s to measure our patients heart’s rate and electrical rhythm, which can be abnormal in many conditions directly affecting the heart, such as in older dogs where leaky heart valves can produce heart sounds called murmurs. However, ECG’s can also be extremely useful in helping our vets assess the impact that diseases of other organs can have on the heart as well as the effects of certain drugs.
By performing an ECG on your pet, our vets are enabled to make an accurate assessment of your pet’s heart also improving the vet’s ability to diagnose and treat these and other conditions
Animals, like people, have two kidneys that are in the abdomen close to the backbone. The kidneys have many roles, including filtering waste products, drugs, and toxins out of the blood stream and concentrating them in the urine for removal from the body. Normal kidneys can make the urine concentrated or dilute, based on the needs of the body, to prevent dehydration or water overload. The kidneys also regulate blood pressure and make certain hormones. When the kidneys fail, normal waste products build up to toxic levels in the body. Intravenous fluids may help flush these toxins out of the body. When this type of medical management is unsuccessful, dialysis is indicated to help remove these toxins.
Who would benefit from dialysis and when should it start?
Dialysis is available for both dogs and cats and can be used for acute or chronic kidney failure. Pets must be at least 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds).
Dialysis is used to treat:
Acute or chronic kidney failure
Animals for whom standard therapy (intravenous fluids, medication, etc.) has proven ineffective
Animals with life-threatening complications of kidney failure (e.g. high potassium levels and fluid in the lungs)
Animals who have eaten a poison that can be removed with dialysis
