CT scanning service for pets

Why would my pet need a CT scan?

CT scanning provides advanced visualisation of bones, organs and vessels from any angle.

Your vet may use a a CT scan to aid diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic problems, neurological conditions, blood vessel diseases or even cancer.

It allows the vet to see inside your pet which means they can provide a more accurate and timely diagnosis of both routine and potentially life-threatening conditions.

The same technology is used in NHS & private hospitals throughout the UK.

What happens when my pet has a CT scan?

Your vet team will explain the process to you, but, typically, you might expect your pet to be admitted in the morning, with either the vet or nurse. 

During an admission appointment, your contact details for that day will be confirmed, so that your vet can get in touch if they need to discuss anything while your pet is in the clinic. Your vet will explain what is going to happen and you’ll be able to consent and ask any questions.

Your pet will need to be sedated or anaesthetised for a short time during the scan.

They’ll have their scan and, depending on what’s been arranged, your vet may ring you to discuss their findings and the ongoing plan, or you’ll have been asked to call to arrange a going-home appointment, at which your vet will go through everything with you.
