Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

At the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic, we are able to offer multiple imaging and diagnostic services such as ultrasound, endoscopy and digital x-ray. Our digital x-ray is one of our most used and relied upon diagnostic tools. There are multiple advantages to digital x-ray such as their efficiency and reduced time to acquire images which can mean less stress for your cat. Images can also be modified and enhanced using computer software for better diagnostics and emailed in a timely manner to specialists for advanced interpretation or even to yourself. Our digital images can be reviewed in every room of the hospital within a matter of seconds. An ultrasound is another valuable diagnostic tool which is a non-invasive and pain-free. An ultrasound can allow us to examine your pet’s internal organs in more detail then an x-ray is able to provide.

What is the difference between a cat x-ray and a cat ultrasound?

X-rays and ultrasound are valuable diagnostic tools used to look inside your pet in a non-invasive manner. X-rays are 2D images that involve radiation and are primarily used to assess bone structures and/or masses in the lungs or abdomen. Ultrasound is a scan of images and is used to primarily look at soft tissues and organs. Your veterinarian will recommend the appropriate diagnostic tool for your pet.

Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?

Yes. We do have the ability to take dental x-rays of your cat’s mouth while under a general anesthetic.
