Dog X-ray

Radiographs, or x-rays, are a very commonly used diagnostic tool at a veterinary hospital. It allows us to have a look at the animal to evaluate multiple bones and even internal organs.

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

Radiology is used primarily as a diagnostic tool. If we suspect a certain disease or condition, we can use x-ray to confirm many different things (broken bones, bladder stones, cardiac disease).

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

From the owner’s standpoint, there isn’t much preparation involved. The only thing would be to make sure to fast your pet overnight if sedation will be required.

How much does a dog x-ray examination cost?

Pricing varies depending on your dog’s needs. Contact Dartmouth Veterinary Hospital at 902-434-0700 and we can provide you with a personalized quote for you and your dog.
