What happens to my pet when it is booked in for X-rays?
Most of our patients are admitted into hospital for the day to have x-rays taken, unless it is an emergency and we’ll take them straight away. We ask that you bring your pet in unfed on the morning of admission, as they will most likely be sedated or anaesthetised to allow us to take the best quality x-rays possible.
Why do pets need to be sedated or anaesthetised to have radiographs taken?
When we have x-rays taken the radiographer asks us to keep perfectly still, often in unnatural positions. Most pets would never lie still enough, in the correct position, for us to take good quality x-rays required to diagnose their condition. Sedation and anaesthesia allow us to get the most useful x-rays possible.
