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 Crossroads Animal Hospital our veterinary diagnostic imaging involves x-rays and ultrasound. These are non-invasive tests and are completely painless. X-rays and ultrasound may help us find a definitive diagnosis to a problem, and other times to simply add more info to help us put the puzzle together for the best treatment plan for your pet. X-rays and ultrasounds help us diagnose problems we can’t always tell with just a physical exam, a few of these include foreign body, obstructions, and fractures.
What is the difference between X-ray and Ultrasound services at your hospital?
Ultrasound is used to look internally at soft tissues of the body. It helps determine the health of the organs like gallbladder, stomach, and kidneys. Generally, there is no sedation required for this procedure.
X-rays help us to accurately diagnose the state of the skeletal structure and composition, large body cavities and the presence of many foreign objects. Some dogs may benefit from sedation to reduce anxiety and stress.
How much does a dog X-ray exam cost?
We are happy to discuss the costs associated with an x-ray for your dog. Please call our office to speak with one of our friendly pet care specialists. We can answer any questions you may have 403-527-2829.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the 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
