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.

When there is a problem however, and Kitty has chosen a different location for his or her toileting needs, this can be a huge strain on the relationship that cats enjoy with their owners (and can result in relinquishment to a shelter or euthanasia).

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
