FAQs

Why might my veterinarian recommend an X-ray for my pet?

  • X-rays are recommended to help diagnose a variety of conditions in pets, including fractures, joint issues, organ abnormalities, foreign objects, tumors, and respiratory problems. They provide valuable insights into your pet's internal health and aid in formulating effective treatment plans.

Are X-rays safe for my pet?

  • Yes, X-rays are safe when performed by trained professionals. At our clinic, we take all necessary precautions to minimize radiation exposure and ensure the safety of your pet.

Will my pet need to be sedated for the X-ray procedure?

  • In some cases, sedation may be necessary to keep your pet still during the X-ray procedure, especially if they are anxious or in pain. However, many pets can undergo X-rays without sedation, particularly for routine examinations. Our veterinarians will assess your pet's individual needs and recommend the best approach for their comfort and safety.

However, in more complex cases, we may need to send the images to a specialist for further evaluation, which could take longer.

What happens if an abnormality is found on my pet's X-ray?

  • If an abnormality is detected during your pet's X-ray, our veterinarians will discuss the findings with you and recommend appropriate next steps. This may include further diagnostic tests, such as blood work or ultrasound, or developing a treatment plan tailored to your pet's specific needs. We are committed to providing comprehensive care and supporting you every step of the way.

Can I request copies of my pet's X-ray images?
