Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

Radiography is painless, very safe, and non-invasive, and it can sometimes be performed during an outpatient visit while you wait. Radiography is useful for evaluating the bones and the size, shape, and position of internal organs.

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography. An ultrasound allows your veterinarian to see problems with your cat’s organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision. Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation.

What is the technology?


While the general process of taking the x-ray remains unchanged, the developing process has greatly improved giving us better quality images through digital development versus film. The process is also quicker allowing your veterinarian to get results faster. There are also more digital tools to assess images.

Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?


We are proud to offer digital dental x-rays. Dental radiography involves obtaining X-ray images of the mouth, teeth, and jaws. Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive. Dental radiographs are obtained during a routine dental examination and cleaning. However, in cases of facial trauma or head trauma, dental radiographs may be taken to assess the extent of damage to the mouth, teeth, and jaws. Anesthesia is necessary in this case so that your cat can be properly positioned.

Dental radiographs can help our veterinarians evaluate the health of tooth roots and identify a variety of problems that are not visible just by looking at your cat’s teeth, including:

  • Tumors involving the bones of the jaw
  • Tooth impactions (teeth that are wedged in or cannot erupt normally)
  • Tooth fractures
  • Tooth root abscesses
  • Retained teeth (teeth that failed to shed at the proper time)
  • Feline Resorptive lesions (painful erosions of the tooth)

How much does cat x-ray cost?

How to help injured and orphaned wild animals

Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife.  First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
