FAQs

X-ray beams pass through some tissues but will be blocked by others. This helps to create an image where soft tissues appear grey, air appears black, and more dense matter such as bone and metal will appear white.

Taking an x-ray on an animal is a non-invasive procedure in itself. However, sedation tends to be used in order to reduce the animal’s anxiety. It can also help to reduce any pain experienced by the animal if the injured area needs to be maneuvered to be viewable on the x-ray images. Sedation also ensures that the pet does not need to be further restrained and helps to achieve much clearer imagery than if the pet was moving around.

Here at Paws in the City, we use digital X-rays which produce extremely high-quality images. These digital images can quickly be viewed as there is no need to print them onto film.

The speed at which they can be produced is also very helpful if there is an emergency, as it allows the vet to investigate the internal tissues and make a diagnosis.

They also help to reduce our impact on the environment, as chemicals are not required to produce the imagery, and there are no physical copies that may eventually need to be disposed of.

The digital aspect of the x-rays also allows us to easily share the imagery with specialists if further investigation is required.

X-rays can be used for any of the below presenting problems:

  • Orthopaedic issues, for example fractures, breaks, deformities and lameness
  • Tumours, cysts and stones – x-rays can be used to view changes in the size, shape and position
  • Monitoring heart, lung and other organ conditions
  • Assessment of the pet’s abdomen if experiencing bloating, pain, vomiting or diarrhoea.
  • Diagnosing and monitoring dental problems

Often a pet does not require any preparation for their x-ray as it is carried out when a pet is brought in with an issue that needs to be looked at during the appointment. However, if your pet is schedule in for an x-ray that requires anaesthetic, your vet may advise changes to their feeding routine in the lead up to the appointment.

Our vets will examine your pet and discuss the x-ray procedure with you.

Just as with humans, x-rays are perfectly safe for your pets when used occasionally as a diagnostic tool. Radiation is involved in the use of x-rays, but only very high doses can cause damage, and so is not a problem when used rarely.

If you have any concerns regarding using x-ray imaging on your pet, then please speak to our vets who can discuss the procedure, risks and benefits specific to your pet’s case.

It's Black Friday! Instead of bombarding you with offers and increasing the pressure to spend this Black Friday, we're going to do things a little different!

Instead, we want to take the time to tell you about Black Dog or Black Cat Syndrome. This is a phenomenon where black animals tend to be overlooked in favour of lighter coloured animals when people are considering which to adopt.

Unfortunately, this means that black animals that end up in shelters are much more likely to be put down instead of adopted.

A recent study has found that dogs can actually sniff out when you're upset!

The study found that dogs could smell changes in human breath and sweat to identify a change in chemical odours when people feel stressed.

This could be a huge step in training service & therapy dogs, as the tend to mostly respond to visual cues.

One man’s trash is another cat’s treasure!

We all get so many deliveries these days and end up with endless cardboard boxes. You can put these to use and create an enrichment box for your cat by filling it with recycled things from around the home.

You can:
- add old children’s toys such as suitable balls and stuffed animals
- crumple up old paper bags
- roll up old newspaper or paper scaps to be used as a ball (make sure it’s large enough to not be a choking hazard)
- add wine corks that aren’t crumbling
- add carpet scraps and cutoffs as they make great mini scratching posts for your cat
- add cardboard tubes from empty toilet paper rolls as cats love rolling them around

You can also cut paw sized holes in the sides of the cardboard box to allow them to reach inside!

Do not use old food wrappers or any similar items that may suffocate or be dangerous for your pet

Recent research by The Kennel Club has discovered that without realising it, people are more likely to pick dog breeds that they think have similar personalities to them to have as a pet.

Hello! My name is Shauna. I have always loved animals and knew from a young age I wanted to work with them. At the age of 16, I started an apprenticeship with an animal charity where I learnt most of my knowledge and skills. I have completed many courses and worked in various animal charities and veterinary practices. I am always eager to broaden my skills and knowledge to exceed in the animal industry. Currently I have a dog, Sasha and three cats. All of which I have rescued as well as many guinea pigs, hamsters, and rats.
