Ultrasound Imaging

a detailed view of your pet’s internal health

Like x-rays, Ultrasound imaging allows us to obtain important diagnostic information that cannot be assessed during a physical exam alone.

Using the ultrasound, your doctor can get a three-dimensional image of soft tissue and internal organs, such as the kidneys, liver, bladder, gallbladder, spleen and pancreas.

Some of the diseases that may require use of ultrasound to diagnose are:

  • Renal cysts and kidney disease

  • Bladder stones and tumors

  • Gallbladder blockage

  • Splenic tumors

  • Liver tumors

  • Pyometra

  • Prostate tumors

  • Organomegaly

  • Effusion

  • Bleeding in the abdomen secondary to trauma
