Ultrasound (also called sonography) is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic, real-time, 2-D visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
Ultrasound is often used in the veterinary hospital to examine parts of the body, such as the liver, kidneys, urinary bladder, intestinal loops, pancreas, gall bladder, heart, and blood vessels. Ultrasound is also commonly used for pregnancy detection, screening for free fluid in the abdomen, and obtaining urine samples.
Radiographs also play an important role in the diagnosis process. Our on-site digital x-rays provide our doctors with high-quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders.
X-rays are especially useful in the detection of abnormalities of the skeletal system but are also helpful in diagnosing soft tissue tumors, bone cancer, fractures and growth abnormalities, bladder stones, pregnancy, and foreign objects that your pet may have eaten.
Through telemedicine, our veterinarians can submit radiographs for review by a board-certified radiologist and receive results within hours.
