How Much Does a Dog CT Scan Cost?

A dog CT scan can help look at different parts of the body such as the brain and the spine, similar to that of an x-ray.  But the main difference will rely on the advanced technology that’s able to capture a three-dimensional view rather than a simple two-dimensional view as seen via an x-ray.

During this scan, it will send fine x-ray beams through the body, which will then send the signals to the computer that processes the images.  With the final images, tissue images will show in either a white, black or shades of gray, known as the gray scale.  The number of gray colors will show the ability of the tissue to absorb the x-ray beam and will help identify tissues that are either normal or abnormal.

A dog CT scan is often ordered for a dog that suffers from seizures, disorders, behavior changes or problems walking.

  1. Krista (New york,  New york) paid $2200 and said:

    After what seems like thousands of other tests, also costing thousands of dollars, we were told to try a cat scan and see if it helps offer a diagnosis. After being told our pup likely doesn’t have cancer and may have a benign tumor that is bothering him, we asked the cost. 2200! It is just not possible right now, especially by they told us it is very unlikely there is anything terminal going on. After blood tests and other examinations.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  4. Stephen (davis,  California) paid $3300 and said:

    I was quoted a whopping $3300 for a ct scan for my dog to determine if he has cancer due to his enlarged adrenal gland. He is scheduled for the next day as I write this, I asked for a needle guided biopsy for the adrenal gland to determine if it’s cancerous but they said it’s not possible. None of the doctors have given me any clear answers if the tumor was cancerous, but the usual message to bring him in for a recheck and do ultrasounds, xrays and blood test that resulted in costs of $2500 each time! So to me, I think doing a ct scan is worth it, you get the answers if the cancer has metastasize and just let your dog enjoy the days he has left instead of being pricked and prodded by vets who wants more money.

    Was it worth it? Yes
