Our In-House Imaging Services Include:

Digital Radiography (X-rays)

Our digital radiography system is perfect for examining your pet’s bones, chest, and abdomen. This is really helpful when we need quick results and minimal radiation exposure. This essential diagnostic tool helps us identify fractures, organ enlargement, and other conditions with clarity and precision.


Our ultrasound service provides real-time images of your pet’s internal organs.

This is needed for assessing conditions affecting the heart, liver, kidneys, and more. It’s also instrumental in pregnancy diagnosis and monitoring.

Advanced Imaging through Our Partnership:

MRI and CT Scans

For conditions requiring more detailed imaging, we collaborate closely with Animal Emergency Service. They are equipped with cutting-edge MRI and CT technology. This partnership ensures that your pet has access to the best diagnostic resources for

  • neurological issues,
  • complex orthopaedic evaluations,
  • and detailed internal assessments.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any risks with imaging procedures?

Imaging procedures are generally very safe. We take every precaution to minimise risks, including careful use of sedation if needed.

Can I be with my pet during their imaging procedure?

To ensure the safety and efficacy of the procedure, pet owners are usually not present. However, we ensure all pets are treated with the utmost care and compassion.

How do I prepare my pet for an imaging appointment?

Preparation varies by the type of imaging. For in-house services, we may ask you to fast your pet. For advanced imaging referrals, Animal Emergency Service will provide specific instructions.

How long does it take to get imaging results?

Results from in-house imaging are often available immediately or within the same day. Advanced imaging results will be communicated as soon as they are analysed.

What if my pet needs an MRI or CT scan?

If our veterinarians determine that your pet requires advanced imaging like an MRI or CT scan, we will arrange a referral to Animal Emergency Service, ensuring your pet has access to the necessary diagnostic technology.
