Are X-rays Painful or Harmful for My Pet?
X-rays are a completely painless procedure. If your pet is calm and cooperative, we will not even need to sedate them. Many X-Rays can be completed with your pet awake. In certain cases where your pet needs to be in a unique position for accurate X-Rays, we can provide "same-day" sedation.
Due to recent developments in modern technology, X-rays are safer than ever for pets and humans alike. Digital X-rays only expose your dog or cat to a small dose of radiation.
L & L Animal Urgent Care is aware that when your pet needs a digital X-ray, you may be concerned. While you may be worried about your dog or cat, rest assured that they are in good hands. Because of incredible advancements in recent technology, you don’t have to wonder whether you are doing what is best for your pet when you bring them into our animal hospital in Kirkland for a digital X-ray.
