Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
At Torbay Road Animal Hospital, we have an x-ray machine that aids us in caring for your cat. Our equipment ensures that your cat will have minimal radiation exposure and provides a clear image and aids our veterinarians in diagnosing any issues with your cat! It also allows us to email the images to any referral centre!
What is the difference between a cat x-ray and a cat ultrasound?
A cat x-ray is a type of diagnostic imaging technology that helps our doctors see the inside of your cat’s body. If the doctor requests or recommends one for your cat, then it’s because they feel that it will allow them to make a more accurate diagnosis. Ultrasound lets veterinarians capture real-time images of internal functioning, giving vets one more diagnostic tool for trying to determine what is bothering your cat. Although most feline ultrasound procedures are done to check the progress of a pregnancy, this technology has other potentially life-saving capabilities.
Does the clinic also do feline dental x-rays?
How much does cat x-ray cost?
Please call into the clinic and we can discuss the cost of an x-ray procedure with you.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 8, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
