Ultrasound allows us to look at the size and texture of organs in a three-dimensional way. An ultrasound can show abnormalities on the surface of organs as well as changes within those organs. This information can be invaluable in deciding:
- To do surgery or not
- To do biopsies
- To do more specific blood tests
- To get helpful information prior to surgery
What to Expect
If you have had an ultrasound done on yourself, you know how straightforward it is. The wand is pressed over your body, and pictures show up on a monitor. The only difference for an animal is that the fur needs to be clipped away a bit. Usually, the entire abdomen can be looked at in a 15- to 30-minute span.
We care about your pet as much as you do and want the ultrasound exam to be a positive experience for both of you. Please feel free to ask us questions, we will do our best to provide you with the information you need
