Ultrasound and X-ray Services for Pets

At our facility, we offer digital X-rays and ultrasound for the diagnostic evaluation of our patients.

What is the difference between an X-ray and ultrasound for dogs/cats?

The decision to use either tool depends on the condition that we are treating. For bone fractures, swallowed items and certain forms of cancer, X-rays are typically the best options. An ultrasound allows us to examine the internal and exterior surfaces of soft-tissue organs to identify abnormalities. X-rays and ultrasounds can be used separately or in combination, depending on your pet’s medical condition.

Does the clinic also do feline dental X-rays?

Yes, dental X-rays are conducted with all of our dental procedures. They are sometimes used to assess structures within your pet’s skull.
