Advanced Digital X-rays
At River Run Animal Hospital in Powhatan, VA , we are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body's organs.
