About Cat X-Rays

Cats are known to hide their pain and typically do not show ailments until they are very sick. This is one reason why regular wellness checkups, including yearly x-rays, are so important or ensuring that your cat is healthy inside and out.

X-Rays can protect your cat by picking up illnesses in their tracks before they become fatal. We understand how important your cat is to you, and we are dedicated to providing the best possible care for your feline friend!

The House Call Vet Brisbane team is experienced in cat x-rays and will take every precaution to make sure your cat is relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

Does Your Cat Need An X-Ray?

If you are concerned that your cat may be ill, or if they have been injured, then an X-Ray may be the best way to get a diagnosis. X-rays may either reveal a diagnosis, such as a broken bone or bladder stones or may furnish important information to direct further testing, such as an enlarged liver that may have several possible causes.

Cat X-Rays & Illness Prevention

Bone Fractures

An x-ray is the best way to diagnose a fracture and will help our team of vets to develop the best treatment plan for your cat.

Hip Dysplasia

In cats with hip dysplasia, the leg ball and socket do not fit or develop properly and will rub and grind instead of sliding smoothly. This results in deterioration over time and an eventual loss of function of the joint itself.

Heart Conditions

Cats with heart conditions, whether developed or congenital, can be difficult to diagnose without an x-ray. Heart disease is a catch-all term used to represent a number of issues that affects your cat’s heart or blood vessels and interferes with their normal functions.

Respiratory Conditions

Respiratory diseases are common in cats and can be diagnosed and confirmed via x-ray. By looking at the lungs and heart, our vets can check for infections, pneumonia, and other respiratory conditions.

Intestinal Obstructions

Cats are naturally curious, and many have a desire to eat or chew meat and fish which contains bones. If a bowel obstruction does occur, treating your cat with an x-ray will allow for prompt care and medical attention to help minimize the consequences.

Internal Trauma

After an accident, it is vital to bring your cat in for x-rays to rule out internal injuries. Many times, these types of injuries are not visible on the outside and can only be detected with imaging.
