Ultrasound 

Ultrasonography is another imaging technology that has made the jump from human to veterinary medicine. We use an up-to-date machine that allows us to look at internal tissue, and even the blood flow in the heart and blood vessels!

Some uses of ultrasound in veterinary medicine include:

  • Pregnancy Diagnosis (from about 4 weeks gestation)
  • Heart monitoring
  • Abdominal investigating liver, kidney and bladder problems

Some breeds of dog are very prone to heart problems (eg Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Dobermann Pinschers and many of the giant breeds). Early detection of these problems is vital and allows a much better long term outcome. Ultrasound is one of the most sensitive tools to pick up such issues early, often before any external signs develop. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a heart scan for your pet.

Ultrasound  is non invasive and very cost effective.
