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.
End of school is here! As a mum of two young boys, we live in our little park. Dogs pass through with their owners enjoying an evening walk, the kids are playing grounders and building sand castles, and the parents are unwinding from a hectic day at work and after-school activities.
