At California Dog & Cat Hospital in Stockton, CA, we are proud to be able to offer digital x-rays and telemedicine capability.  Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of the body’s organs. In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pet’s body that we otherwise could not see. It’s a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illnesses.

The images produced by digital radiography are able to obtain without having to have traditional films developed.   The radiographs can be manipulated digitally, giving us the best possible radiographic information to help us diagnose your pets.  Radiographs (x-rays) can be such an important tool in cases ranging from vomiting to limping on a back leg.  In some cases x-rays are not helpful then we would need other advanced imaging to help guide us in our treatment plan.

Price/Estimate: Starting an image of a body cavity or limb will range from $160-180.  Certain radiographs studies (body parts) or the temperant of the patient may require sedation/hospitalization which may cost an additional $100-120 depending on the patient.  Some complex cases may benefit from having the images reviewed by a radiologist. ($120)  The prices are guidelines and are not set.

It is our goal to provide your pets with the best medical care we can offer, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
