Ultrasound allows the doctor to examine the internal organs of your pet in a painless manner with no known side effects. It is more sensitive than x-rays for seeing inside the body.
Ultrasound can be used to uncover structural damage, deformities, or abnormalities of the heart, liver, stomach, kidneys, and other major bodily organs. Ultrasound can also capture “real-time” movements of the organs, so functional abnormalities can also be found.
During an ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are pulsed into your pet’s body. Your pet will not feel these waves or experience any discomfort during the procedure.
Ultrasound technology can help to catch diseases and other health problems at early stages. This is important in helping your pet fight disease and illness before a problem becomes serious. We offer on-site ultrasound services with a mobile radiology service. The mobile Veterinary Radiologist assists our doctors in providing the highest quality medicine and diagnostic capability possible
