Seeing under the skin–that’s what’s possible with ultrasound technology. Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time internal image of an animal’s body, giving us important information about the circulatory, urinary, gastrointestinal and reproductive systems.
Pet Ultrasound in Hales Corners, WI
When do we perform ultrasounds?
Pet ultrasounds can help identify a disease, blockages, soft tissue damage, and other internal injuries. Because ultrasounds don’t require radiation, they’re also used to monitor pregnancies and fetal health in breeding pets.
How it works
Pet ultrasounds works by broadcasting high-frequency sound waves that reflect off your pet’s internal structures. A small probe held against the skin collects the returning signals to create an image of the internal body, most commonly used to examine abdominal organs like the stomach, kidneys, liver, spleen, and gallbladder. Painless and non-invasive, ultrasounds usually require some sedation because the patient must remain completely still.
