When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your cat, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.
What is the difference between a cat X-ray and a cat ultrasound?
X-rays is essentially a 2-D picture of the animal. It is more sensitive for lungs, bones and some soft tissue structures.
Ultrasound allows us to visualize the soft tissue structure in the abdomen with more detail. Sometimes, both x-ray and ultrasound are needed to see the full picture.
Does the clinic also do feline dental X-rays?
Yes, we offer dental radiographs with all our dental procedures.
How much does a cat X-ray cost?
If X-rays are recommended, they would be part of a treatment plan prepared for you at the initial consultation.
