Cat X-Ray & Ultrasound

Cat X-ray and Ultrasound

Fairview Animal Hospital offers a wide range of Ultrasound procedures for our patients. This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. We can perform in-depth abdominal and cardiac ultrasounds with Dr. P. Rist, who is a board-certified radiologist and ultrasonographer. We also offer a basic abdominal ultrasound with one of our trained RVTs where the images from the ultrasound are sent to Dr. Rist for interpretation.

X-rays or radiographs help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. With our use of Digital Radiography, a filmless X-ray image capture, the benefits are less radiation exposure (for patients & team members) and improved time efficiency (less stress and/or anesthetic for your pet).

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


The difference between a cat X-ray (radiograph) and a cat ultrasound is that an X-ray is a still picture of your cat’s internal organs, while an ultrasound is in real time motion internal your cat’s internal organs and heart.

Does the clinic also do feline dental X-rays?


The clinic does offer feline dental radiographs, which are done under anesthetic at the time of a dental procedure.
