Dog X-ray

There are times when x-rays are needed to complete the diagnostic process and allow us to see what is going on inside your dog’s body. Fairmont Animal Hospital offers on-site diagnostic imaging thereby allowing us to have results within the same day. Once the x-ray process is completed, and the x-rays have been reviewed we can move forward and discuss the next options that are available in the treatment of your dog’s current health care issue.

How do you use radiology at your practice?

X-rays, or radiographs, are used to take internal pictures of our pets’ bodies. They are used for looking at many areas of the body, including the chest, abdomen, limbs, spine, head, and neck. They can be used for a variety of reasons: to determine causes of limping, coughing, looking for causes of obstruction, looking for stones, and more. They can be a very helpful diagnostic tool for us to determine why a pet is not feeling well.

How do you prepare your pet for an x-ray?

For some x-rays, we require pets to fast (no food before the appointment). This is advised if we need sedation for the pet, to keep them still for the best x-rays possible. If x-rays are taken of the bladder, we ask that our patients don’t go to the bathroom before the appointment.

How much do dog x-rays cost?

Diagnostic imaging costs vary depending upon the type and number that are required – we will provide you with a treatment plan at the time of the examination; this plan will be tailored to your dog’s specific health care needs as presented at the time of the appointment.
