South Russell Veterinary Hospital is now offering digital dental X-rays to assist the doctors in diagnosing dental health issues. Digital x-rays provide an unsurpassed level of detail that can spot trouble earlier than traditional film x-rays. Dental x-rays enable the doctors to see what is going on below the surface of the gums, where serious problems can reside. Cracked teeth and oral decay can be very detrimental to your pet's overall health. What is true about humans is also true about pets - dental health impacts the entire body, including the heart.
