This advanced technology allows our veterinarians to non-invasively scan the internal organs of a pet in real time. Ultrasound machines use the echoes from sound waves to generate digital images.
Since the images are being generated immediately, we can view the functioning of the organs and watch for things like the action of the heart valves as blood is being pumped.
Where, in the past, the only option for seeing the internal organs was through exploratory surgery, digital ultrasound has allowed us to diagnose conditions without placing the pet under any additional stress.
If you have any questions about our imaging abilities or feel that this technology would be of benefit to your pet, please contact the helpful veterinarians and staff of Desert Inn Animal Hospital.
