Companion Imaging is one of the companies that has brought advanced MRI technology to veterinary practices. The imaging tool has become in demand as more and more veterinarians are recognizing the useful diagnostic capabilities of an MRI, which captures images that are far more detailed than an X-ray. The scans allow veterinary surgeons a close look at injury, illness, and other abnormalities inside a pet’s body, enabling them to accurately diagnose any unexplained symptoms and make better-informed treatment decisions.

MRIs need not be financially out of reach for veterinary practices. Providers such as Companion Imaging offer affordable options and even interest-free payment plans. Learn more about options for high-tech imaging services at
