• My question pertains to recent radiographs performed on my dog Brody. On 3/24/2019, abdominal radiographs were taken which revealed a mass near or in his lung. Unfortunately, the radiographs were not clear and the vet could not draw any real conclusions. Should an ultrasound of his chest be performed and would you recommend any additional testing? In addition, radiographs were done on 10-18-2018 and Brody's plan renewed on 1-16-2019. I was charged by the Spartanburg Banfield Hospital for this set of radiographs. I believe that the radiographs should have been free since 3 views are included in his Special Care Plan. If he did not have any radiographs done since 1-16-2019, there should have been no charge for the service. I look forward to a prompt reply.

    Hi Jeanne,
    I recommend that you call your local Banfield Veterinarian and discuss your questions with them. They know your pet’s medical history so they will be able to best advise you on the next steps needed to help with the diagnosis of the mass. They will also be able to answer your questions about the radiographs and the wellness plan since they have access to your pet’s medical history.
