Dog x-Ray and Ultrasound

Radiology, or x-rays, are an important diagnostic tool to help get to the root of what problems your pet may be facing. Our digital x-ray is the latest technology to give us a clear picture of what may be happening inside your pet. We also have the ability to email your pet’s radiographs to a specialist for a second opinion, and we can even email them to you.

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


In some cases, we will be able to get an x-ray done during your appointment and depending on the nature of the presenting problem. Oftentimes, it will be necessary for your pet to stay in the hospital for a few hours or possibly need to return for the next day. If we are scheduling x-rays, it is recommended to not give your dog any food after 10 pm the night before. This helps us visualize better detail in the abdomen but also in some cases, sedation will be needed, and an empty stomach helps prevent problems that may arise.

How much do dog x-ray examinations cost?


X-rays vary in cost depending on how many views are being taken, whether or not sedation is involved, and if your pet needs to stay for part of the day. For a more specific cost, it will be necessary to have first had an examination/consultation with the veterinarian. A more detailed estimate can be given at the time of your visit or if you call us and your pet is being scheduled to come if for x-rays during another day.

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.

The following policies were updated on Tuesday April 7, 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 613-542-7337. 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. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Wednesday: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm
Wednesday to Friday: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Saturday: 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 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 for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. We accept credit card and debit card.

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.

7. 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.
