Ultrasound

Ultrasound allows the vet to examine the internal organs of your pet in a painless manner with no known side effects.  It can be used to uncover structural damage, deformities, or abnormalities to 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.  They do not feel this and it does not cause any discomfort.  The sound waves travel until they reach body tissue and are then relayed back to the device.  The machine uses calculations based on the distance traveled to produce the ultrasound image.  Many people relate ultrasounds to pregnancy exams to show the baby inside the mother, but it has many other uses.

Ultrasound technology can help to catch diseases and other health problems at early stages.  This is important in helping your pet fight any diseases they may be afflicted with before the problem becomes serious.  If your pet is sick bring them to see us and, if necessary, we will perform an ultrasound to help diagnose the problem.
