Mobile Pet Ultrasound
Sometimes, diagnostic imaging like a veterinary ultrasound is required to diagnose your pet’s condition and provide the best medical care moving forward.
What is Pet Ultrasound Imaging?
Pet diagnostic imaging, such as ultrasound, can help your veterinary doctor or specialist to diagnose conditions like conditions of the GI tract and heart, bladder stones, and pregnancy that would otherwise be missed on a routine physical exam. An ultrasound machine uses sound waves to create images called sonograms.
Based on location, most of our veterinary doctors can provide an AFAST exam. Pet ultrasound imaging is usually a pain-free process for your pet, but medications may be prescribed ahead of time to keep them calm during the process, and sometimes sedation may be required to keep your pet still and stress-free. Some images may require a consultation with a board-certified cardiologist or other specialist for interpretation.
