Dog x-Ray

Harbour Cities Veterinary Hospital is equipped with on-site x-ray capabilities. X-rays performed in-house are reviewed during your appointment so that recommendations for your pets’ care can be made promptly. Occasionally radiographs are sent out for a second opinion to a board certified radiologist.

How do you use x-ray and radiology services at your clinic?


We use radiology to help us diagnose or confirm suspected disease processes including but not limited to intestinal blockages (those socks your pet likes to eat), tumours or broken bones and changes in the heart, lungs, and other organs.

How do you prepare your dog for their x-ray appointment?


Most often x-rays appointments do not need any special preparation. From time to time x-rays will be done under sedation to ensure the pet does not move so that we can get diagnostic/quality images. When sedation is needed a member of our team will speak with you about fasting your pet and any other pre-diagnostic preparation that may be required.

How much do dog x-ray examinations cost?


The fees for x-rays vary depending on the number of radiographs taken and if sedation is required. Depending on the concern, the veterinarian may request more than the standard two views, or in the case of a barium study, a series of x-rays is taken over the course of a few hours. We are happy to provide you with an estimate of fees at the time of your appointment.
