Cat x-Ray and Ultrasound
X-ray and ultrasound are diagnostic tools we use to visualize internal structures (what we cannot see from the outside).
What is the difference between a cat x-ray and a cat ultrasound?
An x-ray is a flat image, used mainly to determine size and shape or organs, bones, and gas. An ultrasound is a series of images based on depth, that determine shape and volume of organs and tissues, and asses fluid in the body.
Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?
We do not have a dental x-ray machine, but can visualize some teeth on skull x-ray. When a dental x-ray is helpful, we often refer our clients to one of the local dental specialists.
How much does cat x-ray cost?
Keepin mind this is AFTER the exam – If the cat is uncomfortable, stressed, or painful, we will sedate her first. We charge an initial fee for the first x-ray, but this includes the set up of the machine and processor and taking of the first x-ray. We then charge a lesser fee for any additional x-rays. The veterinarian or RVT will discuss a quote when x-rays are warranted.
