Pet Ultrasound

A non-invasive way to diagnose sick & injured pets.

We are happy to be able to now offer diagnostic ultrasounds on Thursdays and Fridays with a board-certified radiologist!

The ultrasounds are scheduled by appointment on Fridays and Thursdays. The radiologist will review the ultrasound findings at the conclusion of the scan.

The ultrasound findings will be reported to the patient’s veterinarian for follow-up at the referring doctor’s next scheduled work day.

We offer veterinary ultrasounds for pets. Much like ultrasound for people, pet ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose sick and injured animals.

How does ultrasound work?

When the sound waves penetrate the body, they “bounce” back. The ultrasound machine measures the time it takes for a sound wave to bounce back and creates an image.

What conditions can be diagnosed by ultrasound?

Some injuries and conditions that can be identified via ultrasound include:

  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Gastrointestinal obstructions
  • Pregnancy
  • Cysts and tumors
  • Heart conditions

Ultrasound also allows us to safely collect biopsy and fluid samples without having to perform invasive surgeries.

If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury, call us at (302) 762-2694 to schedule an appointment. An ultrasound may be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
