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.
Our veterinarians want to ensure that your pet has the best care possible. One way we can do that is by ensuring that we have the best technology available to diagnose your pet’s medical conditions. Whether it is an emergency or a regularly scheduled appointment, we have the ability to use digital radiology or ultrasound to aid in making a diagnosis.
How do you use x-ray and radiology services at your clinic?
We utilize radiology services to its fullest potential here at RAH. Radiology services are used as a diagnostic tool to help the veterinarian diagnose potential health concerns such as fractures, foreign bodies, heart disease, bladder stones just to name a few. We also use x rays as a post-op tool for major orthopedic surgeries and to see how well bone is healing for procedures like TPLO’s, patella and fracture repairs.
How do you prepare your dog for their x-ray appointment?
X-rays are non-invasive; however, some dogs may see this as a stressful time if they are painful or nervous about being away from their owners. If we see that your dog is painful and/or stressed, we are able to provide them with a mild sedative that will allow them to relax as well as allow the veterinarian to do a proper physical exam. If we know ahead of time that your dog will need to be sedated in order for us to get diagnostic x-rays, fasting your dog for an 8-12 hour period prior to the appointment is a great idea.
How much do dog x-ray examinations cost?
X-ray examination costs are discussed during your dog’s appointment with the veterinarian. We will also discuss the cost involved with the surgery at this time. If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact our team at 506-387-4015.
