Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

Digital X-ray is a valuable diagnostic tool. This equipment provides our vets with clear imaging to evaluate your cat’s condition.

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

Radiography emits X-rays which are absorbed differently by different tissues and creates a detailed image that our skilled veterinary staff can use for many various diagnostics.

Ultrasound uses soundwaves that bounce off tissue to create an image. It takes great skill and additional schooling to be able to read and interpret ultrasounds. This is why we ask our great friend Dr. Rist (Maritime Veterinary Imaging) to help when we have patients that need ultrasounds.

What kind of equipment is used for X-rays?

We are equipped with a digital dental radiograph machine, and this is a valuable tool used to see beyond the gumline. Dental X-rays provide essential information for determining if teeth need to be extracted.

How much does a cat X-ray cost?

We would be happy to present you with an estimate for such services.
