Ultrasound and X-ray Services

Our veterinary facility is equipped with medical imaging equipment to perform digital X-rays and ultrasounds. This equipment is very useful in allowing our veterinarians to quickly make an accurate diagnosis.

What problems can be detected with this equipment?

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Fractures or cracks
  • Foreign bodies
  • Kidney stones
  • Cardiac or respiratory issues
  • Tumours
  • Dental problems

Why did my pet need an X-ray followed by an ultrasound?

First of all, you should know that ultrasounds complement X-rays. Ultrasounds give a more accurate 3D reading of your pet's organs. They confirm any conditions that showed up on X-rays and diagnosis is more precise and accurate.

However, in some more complex cases, our veterinary team may have to ask a specialist for a second opinion before confirming their final diagnosis.

Does my pet need to be sedated for X-rays? 

Pets don't generally need to be sedated, since X-rays are quick, painless and non-invasive. However, sedation may be needed if your pet is in a lot of pain or moving too much to get sharp, clear images.
