Ultrasound is a form of imaging that allows us to look inside your pet’s body without the use of surgery. It is a completely non-invasive technique.The ultrasound machine sends sound waves into your pet’s body, these sound waves are reflected back to form a picture of what’s going on inside your pet.

The wand is pressed over your pets body, and pictures show up on a monitor.

The hair may need to be clipped away around the affected area. Usually, the entire abdomen can be looked at in a 30 to 60 minute period.

Usually there is no need for sedation, unless your pet is very nervous, in pain or if biopsies will be taken at the same time.
