Dog X-ray and Ultrasound

We have several options available to us to help with diagnosing issues with your pet. We have both x-rays and ultrasound here.

How do you use x-ray and radiology services at your clinic?

We use x-rays to check for many things. X-rays are the best tool we have for looking at things like bones, joints and the chest. We can get views that show concerns that need to be addressed. They are a great tool to use as our dog’s age, and we look for things like arthritis. Ultrasounds give us a chance to look inside your dog. It gives us a more detailed view of things like organs.

How should I prepare my dog for their x-ray appointment?

Often there is no preparation for radiographs, but sometimes we need to give a bit of sedation to your dog to help with discomfort and positioning. If this is the case, then your dog needs to be fasted (no food) for 6-8 hours. When doing ultrasound fasting times vary but are equally important.

How much does a dog x-ray exam cost?

X-rays are charged based on how many and what type is required. We charge a little more for the initial one as this includes the setup fee as well. After that, each one that is needed is charged individually. Ultrasounds costs are based on what area we are checking, and prices vary but will be quoted for you.
