Ultrasound Services For Pets

By Amanda Morehead, RVT

An ultrasound exam is used to take a look at the organs and structures within the abdominal and chest cavities. In order to perform an exam we use a transducer that emits sound waves into the body. These sound waves are reflected back to the transducer to create a 3D image on the monitor of the ultrasound machine. We can save 2D images or 3D videos to document abnormal findings. Images are then transmitted to a veterinarian that specializes in reading ultrasound images so that they can report diagnostic information for the doctor.

Some common medical conditions that ultrasound can be used to explore are kidney disease, pancreatitis, cancer, and heart disease. We can also do pregnancy exams to see how puppies and kittens are doing in the womb similar to people.
