X-ray

Here at Talbot Animal Clinic, when we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.

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


X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines and colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Interpretation of radiographs requires great skill on the part of the veterinarian.

How should I prepare my dog for their x-ray appointment?


If we are booking your pet in for radiographs ahead of time, we will inform you about any specific requirements (i.e. they need to not eat the night before, etc.). Sometimes, an empty stomach or having them go to the bathroom before helps us get a better view. Depending on which x-rays we need and how excited your pet is, we may require sedation for an accurate radiograph.

How much does a dog x-ray exam cost?


Costs will vary depending upon the type of x-ray and number that are needed. Our staff will provide you with a recommended treatment plan at the time of the examination, and based on that plan we will be able to discuss costs before we do the treatment.
