Are X-Rays Safe For The Mom And Puppies?
In response to the question of whether x-rays are safe for pregnant dogs, the answer is yes. However, x-rays are only performed after 45 days from conception when the puppies have completed their most critical development and can be fully seen on the x-ray. The exposure to radiation for both the mother and the puppies is minimal since only 1-3 x-ray views are taken. At our clinic, we use modern equipment with minimal radiation spillover, and our team wears protective gear during the process to prevent prolonged exposure.
