Copy of X-ray?

Post by Buzzwizz619 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 11:43 pm

Ruben may have to have a chest X-ray if the next round of Anti-biotics doesnt clear his chest up (wheezing for over 6 weeks but completely fine in himself).

If he does have to are they usually anaesthetised? sedated? awake? (although i doubt he will sit still long enough for that!)

Do i get a copy of the X-ray? Ive never had anything X-rayed before and always assumed just the just vets get them, but lots of people seem to share pictures of there X-rays on FB and if it is something thats allowed that would be really interesting to see and keep!

Thanks

Amy

They have to lie very still to get a good image so would usually be given a whiff of gas first. We've never been given copies of the images (our vet tried to copy one for us once but couldn't get a good enough picture). They have happily let us take photos of the x-rays though so that will likely be an option for you.

When I asked for a copy my vet took a picture and emailed them to me. Here they are:

Hope Ruben sounds better soon.

Wonderful! :D

Some vets already use digitalised xrays, pretty sure those images can just be forwarded. :) Physical xrays are a bit harder to copy.
