We remain open to provide care for your pets. We are following the direction of government and regulatory authorities and have implemented hospital and visit protocols to keep both you and our team safe. For regular updates on our hours and visit protocols, please follow our social media platforms.
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.
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 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?
Please call our hospital at 204-269-8162 to discuss pricing.
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.
Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.
The following policies are up-to-date as of Tuesday April 7, 2020:
1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. Please call 204-269-8162 when you arrive for your appointment or ring the doorbell, and one of our staff members will meet you at the hospital entrance to admit your pet for their exam. Once the veterinarian has finished the exam, we will call to discuss our recommended treatment plan.
2. We are continuing to accept 2 routine appointments per day, per doctor, but priority will be given to urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. If you're unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.
