Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
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.
All cats, but indoor cats especially, need enrichment and mental stimulation. Enrichment can increase activity (which can help with weight control) and prevent many behavioural issues related to low mental stimulation (things like inappropriate litter box usage, anxiety, aggression and attention-seeking).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
