X-ray Services for Pets

Veterinarians use digital radiography (X-rays) to figure out what is happening inside your pet’s body without surgery or pain. X-rays help create images over internal structures by penetrating layers of tissue. Combining this with other diagnostic tools, like bloodwork, enable our team to get an accurate look at how your pet’s body is working. If you have questions about our X-ray services, please contact our team at 403.637.3928.

What conditions can X-rays examine?

X-rays are used to get pictures of hard structures in your pet’s body. To get a better picture of what is going on internally, X-rays may be used to diagnose a condition. X-rays are commonly used to examine:

  • Heart conditions
  • Pregnancies
  • Broken bones
  • Ligaments and tendons
  • Arthritis
  • Periodontal disease

    Are X-rays safe for my pet?

    During X-rays, our team gives your pet protective apparel to keep them safe. The amount of radiation used is very small and poses very little risk to your pet’s health. If you would like to learn more about the safety precautions we take, give us a call at 403.637.3928.

    Will my pet feel pain during an X-ray?

    No, the procedure is completely painless. Our team will ensure they are relaxed and comfortable. In certain cases where the patient is anxious or constantly moving, we may give them a sedative during X-rays as they need to remain still for more accurate pictures.

    We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all our clients that have been so patient with us during the current pandemic situation. We are happy to announce that we are open again!

    We are kindly asking that our clients still wear a mask when they are in the building to protect themselves and our staff. Our waiting room will be limited to one client at a time. All our staff will also still be wearing their masks and taking care to wipe down frequently touched surfaces and sanitize in between clients and patients as we have always done.

    If you are uncomfortable entering the clinic, please do not hesitate to call and we are happy to serve you and your pet curbside. As always cats must be in carriers, and dogs must be on a leash for safety and liability reasons.

    We know that these have been trying times for everyone, but rest assured your pet is still receiving the highest quality of care that you have always known from our veterinarians and staff members.

    If there are any concerns or special circumstances, please feel free to discuss this with our staff and we can take it into consideration.

    - Your dedicated team at Cremona Veterinary Clinic
