Ultrasound

Our hospital offers ultrasound (sonogram) examinations as a non-invasive procedure to evaluate internal organs. We use ultrasounds to help us identify internal growths or lumps, abnormalities with organs or tissues, or to find out if your pet is pregnant. By using sound waves to painlessly scan the body, ultrasounds are a safe, easy way to obtain a picture of what????????s happening inside your pet????????s body. We start by shaving your pet????????s belly. Next we position your pet on their back in a support cradle. Gel is then placed on the abdomen and the ultrasound probe is moved methodically over the surface of the abdomen to record images. Ultrasounds usually take about 20 ???????? 40 minutes. If your pet is already experiencing pain or has difficulty lying still, we will use a safe, general anesthetic to complete the procedure. Most pets do not require sedation or anesthesia. Many times both radiographs (X-rays) and ultrasound of your pet are recommended for best evaluation of your pet's problem. X-rays show the size, shape and position of the organs and the ultrasound allows your veterinarian to see the internal structure of the organs.  If your veterinarian has concerns about their initial ultrasound examination, they may refer you to a specialty veterinary hospital for further evaluation or have our radiologist perform another ultrasound.
