Ultrasound and X-ray Services for Pets

In order to provide optimal treatment to your pet, we need diagnostic tools that give us pristine results. Our modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. We also provide ECG (electrocardiography) services on-site, which are followed by consultations with cardiology specialists. Our veterinarians are happy to answer your questions when it comes to your pet’s results. To learn more about our ultrasound and X-ray services, as well as how they can benefit your pet, call us at 905.597.7373

Why would my pet need an ultrasound or X-ray?

We use ultrasounds and X-rays to look inside your pet’s body. It gives us instant results and allows us to treat any abnormalities we find. We’re often looking for injuries, objects your pet may have consumed, inflammation or irregular growth. If we cannot find the cause of your pet’s discomfort, we will try different diagnostic tests to give us a clearer image.

What’s the difference between an Ultrasound and an X-ray?

Ultrasounds and X-rays have their individual strengths. There’s a difference in how they’re administered and the type of results they produce.

Ultrasounds: During an ultrasound, your pet’s fur may be shaved, only in the afflicted area, and the gel is placed on their skin for the probe to glide smoothly. Ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of your pet’s internal system. It provides a detailed image of their muscles, joints and internal organs. We can spot pregnancies, growths, arteries and more.

X-rays: An X-ray, also known as radiography, uses protective gear to shield your pet from being exposed to radiation. A light ray is focused on the afflicted area, which then penetrates through your pet’s body and provides an image of their bones and organs. We use X-rays to examine the condition of your pet’s teeth, chest and abdomen.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

The time has come to begin our reopening process! We cannot believe it has been over a year since we’ve had you all in the clinic but we are excited and eager to welcome you back. Please read carefully below for our updated policies and protocols.

SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Effective October 20, 2021, we will be allowing vaccinated clients in the clinic for doctors’ appointments only. Technician appointments and medication/food pick up will continue to be curbside to control the amount of people in the clinic at any given time.
  • We will be allowing one client to accompany their pet in the appointment. Because we will only be allowing one client in at a time, we will not be able to permit children to accompany their parents. There is a strict one-client rule due to the size of our examination rooms.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please give the clinic a call at 905-597-7373. A Client Care Representative will either let you know the technician is ready to meet you at the door or will retrieve a phone number if we are not quite ready yet.
  • A technician will meet you at the front door. Please have your vaccine passport/identification ready at this time. The technician will also ask you a few COVID-19 Screening questions before guiding you into the clinic.
  • Face masks are still required to enter the hospital and must be worn properly at all times within the clinic and when interacting with our team members outside.
  • Please sanitize your hands upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • FOOD AND PRESCRIPTION ORDERS

    We appreciate advance notice for food and prescription refills. Please call 905.597.7373 upon arrival at the FRONT DOOR and a receptionist will be out with your order right away.
