Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

We are pleased to provide x-rays for our patients. For ultrasound cases, we primarily refer to Dr. Rist. He visits Halifax once a month, and he can perform the ultrasounds for us at our location. If the situation is urgent, we can arrange to refer to another veterinarian.

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


An x-ray is essentially a black and white photo of your cat’s insides. An ultrasound uses sound waves to generate an image of the appearance of the cat’s internal organs. The best imaging technique to use depends on the case.

Does the clinic also do feline dental X-rays?


Absolutely! Dental x-rays are important for all patients. They help to assess the roots of the teeth and what is going on beneath the gum line. Six dental radiographs are required for every feline patient to assess each tooth accurately.

How much does a cat X-ray cost?
