PennHIP X-rays

PennHIP x-rays can help when it comes to predicting the type of treatment and diagnostics your pet will need. At Animal Clinic of Honolulu, a veterinarian in Honolulu, HI, on our team is here to help provide comprehensive services, including PennHIP x-rays, to determine the best treatment for your pet. Read on below to see how this simple exam can help your pet.

What Are PennHIP X-Rays?

PennHIP x-rays are an advanced form of imaging specifically designed to assess hip joint health. The exam may involve capturing multiple images from different angles and measuring the distance of the joint space between your pet’s hip bones. This can help diagnose any existing issues, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Musculoskeletal trauma or injury

By checking and evaluating your pet’s hip joint health, our veterinarians can help determine the best course of treatment for any existing issues in order to ensure your pet’s long-term health and mobility.

How Are PennHIP X-Rays Performed?

PennHIP x-rays are performed right here in our Honolulu, HI, animal hospital. Your pet may be administered a sedative to ensure they remain comfortable and still during the exam. Once they are fully sedated, a veterinarian on our team can position your pet’s hips and takes the necessary x-ray images.

Once the exam is complete and the images have been taken, our team can help evaluate the results to determine if any issues are present or if further care is necessary.

Why Is It Important?

Obtaining PennHIP x-rays might be essential for the long-term health and wellbeing of your pet. These images can help detect signs of joint pain or dysfunction, allowing a veterinarian on our team to identify potential issues before they become serious. By having a clear understanding of the condition of your pet’s hip joint, you can plan an appropriate treatment or preventative health care plan to ensure their long-term mobility.

What Should You Expect from Our Veterinarian?

In addition to providing comprehensive PennHIP x-rays, our veterinarians are here to provide ongoing support and personalized care for your pet. We understand that each pet is unique, so we strive to create customized treatment plans tailored to their exact needs.
