ULTRASONOGRAPHY

Ultrasound is non-invasive and pain-free procedure that can acquire detailed structural and functional images of organ systems for early diagnosis and staging of many disease processes such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Lung disease
  • Liver or gall bladder abnormalities
  • digestive tract and pancreatic disease
  • disease of the urinary tract (kidney, urinary bladder)
  • disease of the spleen
  • cancer

Our innovative facility provides both standard ER referral and outpatient sonography services:

With a standard ER & ultrasound referral, an appointment is made with our attending veterinarian who will review the patient’s history, perform a complete physical examination prior to ultrasound and initiate the most appropriate therapeutic and diagnostic plan.

With outpatient-only referrals for ultrasound, your veterinarian will receive a report of the ultrasound findings and will remain responsible for further treatment and case management.

All ultrasound images are evaluated by a board certified radiologist or cardiologist yielding results and therapeutic recommendations within a few hours.
