Dog X-ray and Ultrasound

At College Manor Veterinary Hospital, we use our in-house digital x-ray and ultrasound diagnostic tools to further investigate problems your pet may be experiencing. If your pets are one who likes to eat things they shouldn’t, an x-ray can help us see if there are any obstructions in the intestinal tract. Dr. Bruch uses our x-ray system quite a bit to help him confirm his diagnosis of orthopedic injuries. X-rays can also be helpful in diagnosing pneumonia, heart failure, tumours, etc. We also have a digital dental x-ray system which helps us to gain a clear and detailed assessment of a pet’s dental issues allowing us to provide the best care possible. All of our x-rays are digital, so there is no film to develop, the quality of the images cannot be surpassed, and this also allows us to share images with other veterinary specialists when the need arises.

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

X-rays play an integral part in the diagnosis of many disease processes in our pets. We use them to help diagnose issues of the bone and joints, cardiovascular and lung problems, abnormalities of the internal organs as well as dental disease in our animal companions.

How do you prepare your dog for their x-ray or ultrasound appointment?

Most pets do not require sedation for an x-ray or ultrasound evaluation. On some occasions, though, depending on a particular pet’s case or their personality, sedation may be required to allow a calm and stress-free appointment. We typically recommend fasting before all x-ray appointments, so we can facilitate getting the information we require in one visit vs having the pet come back in for a second visit if sedation is in fact required.

How much do dog x-ray or ultrasound examinations cost?

The cost for x-ray depends on many different factors from the number of radiograph views needed, the occasional need for contrast agents to enhance the x-ray, whether we require sedation to facilitate getting some good quality images etc. The same applies for and ultrasound. One of our veterinarians will formulate and discuss an individualized treatment plan for each specific patient depending on their needs.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

Last updated: Tuesday, May 19, 2020

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 905.853.4706. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan.

2. We can now see all cases by appointment only.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday - Wednesday: 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
Thursday: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Friday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00am - 1:00pm
Sunday: Closed

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone.

You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up, visit our website.

Note: Due to the continued health precautions recommended by Health Canada, we have elected to discontinue 'in clinic' pick-ups for items ordered via our Webstore including both medications and food with immediate effect. The delivery option is extremely flexible and they will deliver to your place of work, home, cottage or wherever you choose.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.

Your dedicated team at College Manor Veterinary Hospital
