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.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
