Dog X-ray and Ultrasound

At 4 Paws 24 Hour Veterinary Hospital, we have a radiology suite on site which includes ultrasound. Our veterinarians can review your pet’s x-rays on-site and also refer the images to a board-certified radiologist if needed. Radiography and ultrasound are extremely helpful tools in assisting with the diagnosis of a pet’s condition.

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


An x-ray (a.k.a. radiograph) will give our team a closer look at what is going on inside of your pet’s body. X-ray’s produce shadow-like images of bones and some organs. The images can reveal signs of disease, injury and on some occasions, a foreign body (your furry friend ate something they shouldn’t have). This is an extremely valuable tool in order to find the best possible treatment plan for your pet.

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


Please check with our team when scheduling an x-ray or ultrasound procedure for your pet. Depending on the procedure, we may have special requirements such as fasting your pet.

How much does a dog x-ray exam cost?

Many people don’t realize that onions and garlic are toxic to pets.  It is so sparsely known that garlic powder is actually a dangerously common ingredient in some homemade dog treat recipes found online.  They are also very common ingredients in many different dishes that we humans love to make, so we need to be extra careful to not allow our pets to ingest anything containing these ingredients. No more licking the plate for Fido and Fluffy!
