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.
X-ray imaging is a very important diagnostic tool. It allows us to visualize structures within the body, without the need for invasive procedures or surgery. X-rays may provide us with a needed diagnosis, in other cases, they may only provide clues or a few pieces to the puzzle of a cat’s overall health issues. As with any test, x-rays often do not provide us with all of the answers, and further tests such as blood and urine tests or ultrasound may be needed to get a complete picture of the problem at hand.
Radiography is an imaging technique that uses electromagnetic radiation (x-rays), to view the internal structures of an animal or human patient. The x-rays that are passed through the body are captured as an image on an x-ray film or digital detector.
Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?
Absolutely! We do dental x-rays with ALL of our dental procedures. It is the gold standard in feline medicine and the only way we can properly tell if a tooth needs to be extracted.
How much do cat x-rays cost?
We would love to discuss this more with you, although this cost can vary. Please feel free to call us and we can give you a better idea of the cost.
Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.
The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:
1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403.246.1115. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan.
2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.
3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, visit our website.
5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.
6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.
Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
