What is a Pet Ultrasound, and why might my pet need one?
A pet ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create detailed images of your pet’s internal structures. It is commonly used to diagnose conditions such as tumors, cysts, and organ abnormalities without the need for surgery.
How does a Pet Ultrasound work?
During a pet ultrasound, our veterinarians use a small handheld device called a transducer, which emits high-frequency sound waves. These waves bounce off internal structures, creating real-time images that help our team assess the health of your pet’s organs and tissues.
Pet Ultrasound painful for my pet?
No, a pet ultrasound is a non-invasive and painless procedure. It involves no radiation, and most pets tolerate it well without the need for sedation.
When is a Pet Ultrasound recommended for my pet?
Pet ultrasounds are recommended when further evaluation is needed after a routine examination or when your pet exhibits symptoms requiring a closer look. It is particularly useful for identifying issues in the abdomen, heart, and reproductive organs.
