Cat and DVM staring at X-Ray

Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

Veterinary diagnostic imaging includes radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound, MRI’s and CT scans, all of which are used as diagnostic tools to collect information on your cat’s health. The vast majority of imaging is non-invasive and completely painless. We only have x-ray and ultrasound services at our clinic.

What is the difference between a cat x-ray and a cat ultrasound?


X-rays are performed regularly in veterinary medicine. They’re cost-effective, and they can accurately diagnose the state of skeletal structure and composition, large body cavities and the presence of many foreign bodies. Ultrasounds use sound waves to examine and photograph internal tissues in real time. An ultrasound allows for easy viewing of organs from different angles that are not easily achieved through x-rays. The functioning of various organs can be observed to determine if they are malfunctioning.

Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?


Yes, we perform feline dental x-rays but only under a general anesthetic. We usually perform dental x-rays while doing a dental cleaning on your pet.

How much does cat x-rays cost?


Please call for more details on pricing.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

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 changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403-278-3168. We will bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the clinic. Our staff will bring your order to your car.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
