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.
Our veterinary team has access to leading radiology services. Our digital x-ray equipment ensures your dog has minimal exposure to radiation while providing our veterinarians with clear digital imaging to evaluate your dog’s condition.
Baxter Animal Hospital utilizes digital x-ray equipment, which means that images are available immediately for interpretation and analysis. When an x-ray is recommended for your pet, our doctors interpret the image right away so you can be informed of your pet’s results during the appointment. Occasionally, sedation is required and you will be notified if this is requested for your pet.
How do you prepare your dog for their x-ray appointment?
The procedure for taking an x-ray is relatively simple and for most dogs does not require any preparation at all. In order to take an x-ray, your dog is required to lie on the x-ray table without moving, while he/she is held in the correct position to take an x-ray of the desired body part. If you believe your dog will not be able to hold still or cooperate during the x-ray procedure (nervous dogs, aggressive dogs or hyperactive dogs) and may require sedation, fasting your dog before their appointment is recommended.
How much do dog x-ray examinations cost?
The cost of x-rays vary with each pet. Costs are determined by the number of pictures that need to be taken and if sedation is required. Please contact Baxter Animal Hospital for a treatment plan for your pet.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 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. If you are arriving for a booked appointment with a doctor, please call from your vehicle when you arrive. We are now allowing 1 family member per appointment into the exam room. You can choose to remain in your vehicle if that is your preference.
Only clients wearing masks will be allowed into the building.
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".

We are OPEN with the following hours: Monday - Tuesday: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm Wednesday - Thursday: 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
