Not all veterinary hospitals have an ultrasound on site. We are proud to offer same day in- house ultrasound capabilities on site.
We use our ultrasound to:
- Check for emergency conditions (abdominal fluid, tumors, etc)
- Check for pregnancy
- Check for bladder stones
- Diagnosing various conditions of internal organs
- Check for internal trauma
Our ultrasounds are read by a board certified specialist. Because we have our ultrasound on site you do not have to wait to schedule. We can do same day ultrasounds – which usually take about 30 to 40 minutes for a complete ultrasound. The procedure itself is quick and painless. Ultrasounds use sounds waves to allow us to look inside your pet’s body to help us diagnose your pet’s problem. They are a great alternative to x rays to better visualize the internal organs.
We also offer echocardiograms .
We prefer our echocardiograms to be done by a board certified cardiologist.
This has to be scheduled ahead of time. We will do a thorough check of your pet’s heart and thorax to evaluate any issues. The echocardiogram will be read by the cardiologist.
