Ultrasounds are extremely versatile, our vets use this non-invasive tool to determine if your female pet is pregnant without exposing the potential babies to any radiation. Ultrasound is also used to spot cysts, tumors, or abnormal growths inside the body. We can even evaluate the health of a pets heart among other internal organs. Ultrasounds can also be used to check for foreign bodies and see if the pet has ingested something that is blocking it. Furthermore, ultrasounds are completely harmless; unlike X-rays, there is no exposure to radioactivity.
