A non-invasive way to diagnose sick & injured pets.
We offer veterinary ultrasounds for pets. Much like ultrasound for people, pet ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose sick and injured animals.
How does ultrasound work?
Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to bounce off and create a picture of internal organs. The computer then creates a moving image that can be recorded or taken as a snap shot. Early detection of tumors, bladder stones, pancreatitis and even adrenal enlargement can be detected with ultrasound.
Most of the time, this non-invasive look at the patient’s internal organs can be done without sedation and is pain-free. Ultrasound produces no radiation, so it can be safely used to evaluate pregnancies.
If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury, call us at (940) 668-8282 to schedule an appointment. An ultrasound may be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
