Treating your pets like family!
Ultrasound offers a non-invasive, non-painful method for diagnosing many diseases. An ultrasound is different than an x-ray in that sound, rather than radiation, is used to create the image. This enables us to not only see the structure we are looking at, but to also see inside. Unlike conventional x-rays which can cause harm if used excessively, evidence shows that ultrasound is completely safe from these side-effects, and can be performed on the pet while it's fully awake. Ultrasound is an invaluable tool in the diagnosis of various diseases including heart disease, kidney and bladder disease, liver problems, and diseases of other major organs. We can also look inside the bladder for stones and growths.
