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 the shape and volume of organs, tissues and assess 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 the 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-rays cost?

Keeping 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.
