Pet Ultrasound in Highlands Ranch, CO
Ultrasound is a very important diagnostic tool because it allows your veterinarian to gain a look at your pet’s internal organs, chest and abdomen without surgery or sedation.
What are the Capabilities of Ultrasound?
In particular, ultrasound for dogs and cats is invaluable for making treatment decisions for various types of heart disease, assessing the function and health of internal organs, and identifying lesions, determining their origin and if they have spread to other areas of the body. Ultrasound can also help guide your veterinarian while obtaining a biopsy.
What is the Pet Ultrasound Process?
In most cases, the procedure is relatively brief, less than an hour, and your pet is able to go home the very same day. Most importantly, though, an ultrasound will help your veterinarian make an accurate diagnosis of your pet’s condition and provide effective treatment recommendations.
Our in-house ultrasound services include two Board Certified radiologists who travel to our practice for full diagnostic ultrasounds, including needle aspirates and needle biopsies.
