A Great Non-Invasive Diagnostic Tool
Using high frequency sound waves, having an ultrasound is a painless procedure that produces images of shapes within the body.
Ultrasound is a great non-invasive way to get a closer look at the organs inside of your pet. It uses ultrasonic sound waves to create images of body structure based on the pattern of echoes reflected from the tissues and organs being imaged.
Usually performed under a light sedation to ensure your pet remain calm and still in order to gain clear and detail images. The process has little to no discomfort for your fur babies.
Ultrasound is a great way to evaluate soft tissue of the musculoskeletal system, the heart and abdominal organs. It can also be used to confirm pregnancy, determine composition of lumps and cystocentesis (a sterile collection of a urine sample).
