Ultrasounds use sound waves and their echoes to give us a picture of what is happening inside of your pet’s body. It is very similar to the way bats and dolphins use their echolocation to “see”. We can see your pet’s heart beating, their intestines moving, etc. In essence we can watch the organs function.
The procedure is simple, painless and noninvasive and is performed by a Board Certified Radiologist. We use ultrasound to help us identify soft tissue masses and inflammation of the organs. It can help us monitor chronic disease. It also helps us identify and classify heart disease so we can appropriately treat your pet.
Ultrasounds can be done right here in our hospital. Should your pet ever need an ultrasound we would be happy to assist you.
