Yes, CAT scans work on dogs too.

Advance Imaging at the Veterinary Referral Center of Central Oregon.

Computerized tomography (CT or CAT scan) is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic tool that our veterinary specialists and emergency doctors use to detect a variety of diseases and conditions.  The scanners produce 2D and 3D images of bones, vital organs, and even blood vessels which is critical when performing tasks such as:

  • Scanning the whole patient in trauma cases such as when animals are struck by vehicles
  • Planning surgical procedures and reducing unnecessary exploratory surgeries
  • Improving the diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • Reducing the lengths of hospitalizations
  • Guiding treatment plans for a variety of conditions including ear infections

The high slice count (16) of our scanner reduces the time our patients have to be scanned – which means less time under anesthesia and/or sedation.

The Veterinary Referral Center of Central Oregon is excited to be bring this advanced technology to our patients in Central Oregon!
