Dog X-ray and Ultrasound

North Town Veterinary Hospital offers high-quality digital radiographs (x-rays) to aid in the diagnosis of many different diseases.

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

At North Town Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians utilize radiographs (x-rays) to evaluate bone and soft tissues such as the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs for abnormalities. Common problems diagnosed with radiographs are fractured bones, arthritis, hip/elbow dysplasia, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, tumours, gastrointestinal obstructions and much more.

How do you prepare your dog for their x-ray appointment?

Many patients that will require radiographs, will have them recommended when they are visiting the veterinary hospital for illnesses or lameness. Some patients are able to have radiographs without sedation. However, some patients are not as relaxed or are in pain and require sedation to facilitate proper radiographs. Patients are admitted to the hospital for a short stay to be sedated and radiographed. If you are scheduling an appointment for radiographs, you will likely be asked to fast your pet for 12 hours prior to the appointment.

How much do dog x-ray examinations cost?

Radiographs can range from $300-500 (or more), depending on the number of views that are needed. If sedation is required, this can be an additional $110-190, depending on the type of sedation needed. We recommend coming in to see one of our veterinarians to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your pet.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, North Town Veterinary Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community we are limiting the amount of clients permitted inside of our building. We have initiated a semi- open door policy to allow one person inside the hospital while your pet is here for a scheduled exam. One person is also permitted inside the hospital for surgical drop offs.

Please call 905-451-2000 when you arrive for your appointment, surgical drop off or emergency service to gain further direction from one of our team members. You can also place an order for pet food through our Online Store by visiting our website.
