What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. It's commonly used to examine the internal organs, such as the heart, liver, and kidneys, as well as the reproductive system. It can even be used to watch the heart as it beats in real time.

What Conditions Can Ultrasounds Diagnose?

Ultrasounds can be used to diagnose a wide range of conditions in pets, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Liver and kidney disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Bladder stones
  • Tumors
  • Pregnancy

How is the Ultrasound Procedure Performed?

The ultrasound procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and typically takes 30-60 minutes. Your pet will be placed on a table, and a small amount of gel will be applied to the area of the body being examined. The veterinarian will then use a handheld probe to scan the area and create images. The entire process is completely pain-free and non-invasive.

After the procedure, your pet will be able to go home and resume normal activities. Your veterinarian will review the images and discuss the findings with you, including any recommended follow-up care.
