My vet advised having an X-ray taken of my cat's paw after she was stomped upon by my reckless neighbor who I am not speaking with anymore. She is always coming to drink my coffee and take my food, but will not even watch for my dearest kitty when walking around.
Anyway, after talking with my vet we concluded that my cat should get an X-ray of her paw. Initially, I said yes and made an appointment to do it, but later I started thinking about it and now I am worried if X-ray is safe for cats.
I know that X-rays advanced over the course of years and that they are safe for humans, but what about cats? I read on various places like here X-ray for cats that it is generally considered safe and that pros far outweigh the cons.
Meaning what? It is safe, but there are chances that it could hurt my cat?
If there are chances, no matter how small, I will be anxious to do this because the cat is walking without any problems.
However, I would like to hear some other opinions before asking my vet further about this, as I am afraid that I am just overthinking this and making it worse than it is... Thank you everyone in advance for your replies!
