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.
