Ultrasound Gives us a Three-Dimensional Look Inside Your Pet
You interact with your pet every day so you know when they’re in pain. You can tell if their tummy ache is just a tummy ache or a more serious condition. When your pet has a health problem, you want them to have the best care possible. To achieve your goal for optimum care, your vet must first make an accurate diagnosis. That’s not always as simple as doing a medical exam or even taking an X-ray. Sometimes your veterinarian has to get inside of your pet for a better look.
Surgery was once the only way a veterinarian had of getting a close look at a pet’s internal organs. Surgery is an effective diagnostic technique, but it’s highly invasive and painful. At Hebron Veterinary Hospital, we prefer to use veterinary ultrasound.
Ultrasound gives us the diagnostic effectiveness of surgery but it’s non-invasive and painless. It’s an important technology that gives us the answers we need without causing unnecessary physical and emotional distress for your pet.
Benefits of Veterinary Ultrasound?
Ultrasound technology gives our doctors a three-dimensional look at your pet’s insides. The equipment uses sound waves to generate an image of their abdominal or chest cavity. We get a good look at your pet’s liver, kidneys, and other internal organs so we can diagnose and evaluate their problems. Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool for assessing these and other symptoms.
Bowel or urinary problems
Poor eating habits
Excessive weight loss
Conditions found during a medical exam
The information we gather during a veterinary ultrasound helps us establish your pet’s diagnostic and treatment plan. After an ultrasound, our doctors may decide to do a biopsy, conduct more tests, perform corrective surgery, or choose other options. If our doctors already have surgery planned, an ultrasound gives us critical pre-surgery information.
In most cases, we perform same-day ultrasounds and provide same-day results. If we need a second opinion on cardiac issues or other problems, we have a board certified ultrasonographer on call.
A Family-Centered Practice
At Hebron Veterinary Hospital, we recognize the value of ultrasound technology so we have it available on site. We invested in ultrasound and other modern technologies so you won’t have to travel far for the valuable diagnostic and treatment procedures your pet requires. It’s part of our commitment to provide the best possible care for our clients and patients.
