Cat X-Rays

Depending on your cat’s symptoms there are times when your veterinarian may want to do an x-ray on your pet. An x-ray can be a useful tool in helping your veterinarian with a diagnosis. X-rays can show broken or injured bones and can also be used to diagnose many other illnesses. Abdominal x-rays can show if your cat has eaten something it shouldn’t have or show a possible obstruction. It can also give the veterinarian an image of the kidneys, liver, spleen, uterus and bladder. Chest x-rays can be useful in diagnosing disorders of the lungs, brachial passages and heart. Your veterinarian will advise you if x-rays are a recommended diagnostic for your pet.

Whats is the technology?

X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that have a short wavelength. Because of this short wavelength X-rays are able to penetrate and be absorbed as they pass through the body, thus creating the image you see on a x-ray film.

Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?

Yes, here at Mission Ridge dental x-rays are often performed on cats undergoing a dental cleaning.

How much do cat x rays cost?

The cost of x-rays varies greatly depending on what is being x-rayed and how many views are being taken. Your veterinarian will be able to provide you with an exact price of what x-rays will cost depending on your pet’s specific needs.
