VCA Todds Lane Animal Hospital not only offers x-ray and chemical lab analysis on site, they also offer ultrasound services as well. Ultrasound is the use of high frequency sound waves to produce an image for identification and measurement of internal organs. Our veterinarians are able to measure the size of the liver, kidneys, heart and even the uterus of a female animal. Ultrasound is useful in identifying the presence of cancerous tumors, cystic masses and cardiovascular failure.
If you are interested in breeding your female dog, our veterinarians can make sure your pet’s reproductive organs are problem free and once your pet is pregnant, monitor the fetal progress using our ultrasound equipment.
Ultrasound is a low-cost alternative to CT scans and exploratory surgery when looking for a problem area that is not readily identified by physical examination or x-ray films. It is also used in conjunction with x-ray to help further identify masses or organ size in your pet.
