What is a CT Scan?
A  CT Scan is a computerized x-ray machine that allows us to scan 360 degrees of your pet, then recreate a 3D image.  This non-invasive tool give us full visualization of the body. 

What conditions can CT scans diagnose?
- Elbow Dysplasia
- Shoulder injury
- Nasal neoplasia
-Fungal infections
- Nasal discharge
- Spinal disease
- Metastatic Check of the thoracic cavity.
- Full abdominal evaluation
- Liver disease
- Vascular anomalies
& Much More!

What to expect the day of the CT scan?
The most important step to getting a good CT image, is to get your pet comfortable and quiet. Some pets will need to be placed under general anesthesia for this.  First, we will check bloodwork and do a full physical exam to ensure your pet will handle anesthesia well. We will also ask that your pet be fasted. NO FOOD OR WATER should be given passed midnight the night prior to their scan.   

After your pet is under general anesthesia the CT scan is performed and images sent to a radiologist for reading.  The radiology team will return their findings in 2-4 days. Once we receive their report, one of our caring veterinarians will call to discuss them with you.

What to expect the day of the CT scan?
In order to perform a CT scan there are many steps to obtain good quality images. The first thing to understand is that most patients are placed under general anesthesia. We want recent bloodwork in order to make this anesthesia a safe process. Things to consider when your pet is going under general anesthesia is that no food or water is given in the morning of the procedure. The second consideration is that a professional veterinarian will perform an exam prior to anesthesia in order to ensure your pet is healthy enough for this process.

After your pet is under general anesthesia the CT scan is performed and images sent to a radiologist for reading. The radiology team usually takes 2-4 days in order to obtain a report.
