How safe are Airport X-ray Scanners? Can't Post

I just discovered that when my puppy was flown to Langkawi, he had to go through the x-ray scanner at the airport. This was inisted upon by security despite being shown that the crate contained a live animal. They said that the animal must be scanned.

Is it safe for the puppy to go through the scanner? What if he had to go through many scans during his lifetime?

I don't think it would have harmed your puppy...if we as humans can go through without much harm..should be okay for puppy..

Have you taken your puppy to the vet for an overall checkup yet?? Maybe you could speak to the vet about this...but I think it is okay..

Is your puppy microchipped?? That could have gotten screwed up..other then that should be okay..

Hi Saphian,

You mean the scanner for our belongings or for the human pass one? If it is the scanner for belongings, then you better ask your Vet about that ... I think one time should be ok, but many ... I am not sure then...

Thanks for your reply.
My puppy was checked by a govt vet a before the flight as reqired by MAS, and travel cert is valid for 6 months. Anyway, I will ask the vet when I take him for his third vaccination next week.

No, my puppy is not microchipped.

Best regards.

Jason,
It's the x-ray machine that scans your bags (not hand carried ones) before you check-in to get your boarding pass.

Best regards.
