Ultrasound

The ability to perform ultrasound is still considered a relatively new offering in the veterinary medicine field. We are happy to consider ourselves well qualified in this practice. The use of ultrasound helps the veterinarian gain invaluable information that can oftentimes be overlooked by other diagnostic methods. Furthermore, ultrasound is non-invasive, making it relatively painless for your pet, and are usually performed in less than 30 minutes. However, if your pet starts showing signs of discomfort, we are happy to administer a light sedative.

Types of Ultrasound:

Abdominal ultrasounds help diagnose gastrointestinal tract tumors, organ enlargement and pregnancy. If the diagnosis cannot be confirmed by ultrasound, the vet may conduct other tests to rule out potential concerns.
