Pet Ultrasounds

An ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that enables an in-depth view of your pet's organs. Many times x-rays, which reveal the size, dimensions and position of the organ, will be utilized in combination with an ultrasound. 

The ultrasound allows for the evaluation of internal organs, and is a highly useful tool in evaluating heart conditions (referred to as echocardiogram), detecting alterations in abdominal organs, and assisting in the recognition of cysts and tumors. With the ability for real-time visualization, ultrasounds are also utilized for pregnancy diagnosis and development monitoring.

Anesthesia or sedation may be necessary to perform an ultrasound on the heart or abdomen for our patients. Diagnoses can often be determined immediately.
