Could your dog, cat or ferret need an ultrasound examination? We’re happy to help.
What Ultrasound Is For
It’s great for diseases of the liver, spleen, pancreas, stomach, intestines, kidneys, prostate and bladder. It’s also excellent for pregnancy diagnosis. We love ultrasound.
Why Ultrasound Is Useful For Pets
- It’s non-invasive. That means it’s an excellent alternative to most exploratory surgery.
- It’s sensitive. We can see structures only a few mm in size that the naked eye could miss.
- It’s fast. We can give a diagnosis on the same day in many cases.
- It’s painless. Pets are only lightly sedated to prevent stress or anxiety.
