A non-invasive way to diagnose sick & injured pets.
We offer veterinary ultrasounds for pets. Much like ultrasound for people, pet ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose sick and injured animals. Our veterinarians use ultrasound to get urine samples and do quick assessments on sick patients, and we call specialists in to perform more detailed and complex ultrasounds. This helps us better diagnose and treat your pet.
How does ultrasound work?
When the sound waves penetrate the body, they “bounce” back. The ultrasound machine measures the time it takes for a sound wave to bounce back and creates an image.
What conditions can be diagnosed by ultrasound?
Some injuries and conditions that can be identified via ultrasound include:
- Bladder and kidney stones
- Gastrointestinal obstructions
- Cysts and tumors
- Heart conditions
Ultrasound also allow us to safely collect biopsy and fluid samples without having to perform invasive surgeries.
If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury, call us to schedule an appointment. An ultrasound may be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
