Ultrasound and X-ray Services for Pets
Radiographs are very commonly used for diagnosis in veterinary medicine. X-rays are painless and surgery-free ways to detect illnesses. Our veterinarians are trained to interpret the images to properly diagnose your loyal companions. Radiographs use a small amount of radiation in your pets. As the radiation passes through them images are taken. If your pet’s situation requires an ultrasound we are affiliated with a referral laboratory that can perform the procedure.
Why does my pet need an X-ray?
X-rays provide images of your pet’s internal organs. Our veterinarians use X-rays to check for arthritis, spinal cord disease, bone tumours, fractures, periodontal disease and nasal cavity disease. For more information on X-rays call us at 905.727.3003.
Is the radiation from X-rays safe for my pet?
Yes. The radiation used in conventional X-rays is completely safe for pets. Even after multiple radiographs it is unlikely that your pet will develop any conditions from the radiation they are exposed to.
Will my pet feel any pain during an X-ray?
No, the process is completely painless. Your pet will be safe the whole time and our team will do our best to keep your furry friend comfortable and relaxed.
