Advanced Technology for Your Animal Companion

Digital radiographs, also known as x-rays, are an essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians. High-definition images such as these are useful in examining your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, and other parts of the body. Importantly, digital radiographs can identify problems that a physical examination may not, such as a broken bone or a tumor. X-rays also help us diagnose dental problems, identify heart disease, and locate an obstruction in your pet’s intestine or stomach. While highly useful on their own, x-rays are particularly helpful when used with other diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound. Use of multiple diagnostic tools improves our hospital’s ability to accurately diagnose and quickly treat your pet.

At Hill Country Animal Hospital we use digital radiography, an advanced technology that allows us to take images faster with less radiation exposure than traditional methods. Digital radiographs are also far more detailed than traditional x-rays and are easy to share electronically with our recommended specialists, who can offer timely second opinions. We take pride in using technology like digital radiography to protect your pet from disease and injury.

This is probably the best office I have been to. I’m not just talking about for the animals…the customer service from the first phone call, to stopping in to pick up meds, to the moment I walked out and even the follow up call! Top notch. Appreciated that you are able to check out in the room. This is really helpful especially to keep interaction without pets to a minimum. I will be back. This was a wonderful 1st time experience. And thank you to the doctor for following up with a call.

I called afterwards because I thought I missed some instructions and the front desk was able to answer my question immediately but the Dr. also called me back to clear up any confusion. My cat is 19 years old and not once did they tell me to euthanize her because of her age. The nurse who was handling her was the best, she treated my cat with care and understanding.

I really can't offer any suggestions for improvement. Dr. Rooker is great. No matter what we see or call her for, she is always very knowledgeable as well as very kind. Also, she always follows up with a phone call. This is very much appreciated. Your staff is great. When we walk in the door, we are always greeted by name made to feel that our visit is just as important to them as it is to us. Thank you.
