How our team uses pet ultrasound
Pet ultrasound is a safe and effective way to diagnose a wide range of conditions and is widely used in veterinary medicine. Pet ultrasounds are a non-invasive diagnostic tool for cats and dogs that allows vets to examine the internal organs of cats and dogs.
What are pet ultrasounds used for?
An ultrasound is a valuable tool in veterinary medicine, as it allows veterinarians to see inside the pet’s body without the need for invasive procedures. Ultrasounds employ high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the pet’s organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, and bladder, among others.
In addition to their diagnostic capabilities, pet ultrasounds are a valuable tool in monitoring the progress of certain conditions, such as pregnancy, or assessing the effectiveness of certain treatments, such as medications or surgeries.
Benefits of Pet Ultrasound
- Ultrasound is non-invasive.
- It can be a quicker and more cost-effective option than other diagnostic tests, such as X-rays or CT scans.
- Results can be seen in real-time.
What to expect
Pet ultrasounds are typically performed by a veterinarian who has been trained and is experienced in using this tool. The veterinarian will place a transducer on the pet’s skin and apply a special gel to help the sound waves travel through the skin. The images produced by the ultrasound will be displayed on a screen, allowing the veterinarian to examine the pet’s internal organs in real-time.
