What's an ultrasound?

Pet ultrasound is a noninvasive diagnostic approach for investigating or monitoring an area of concern in your pet’s body. Similar to diagnostic imaging for humans, ultrasound technology involves directing a narrow beam of high-frequency sound waves into a specific location in the body. As the sound waves penetrate the tissue being examined, the tissue either transmits, reflects, or absorbs these waves. When waves are reflected, they return as echoes, which are then converted into a two-dimensional image that your vet can instantly view and study.

Why would my pet need an ultrasound?

While ultrasound is a highly effective tool for evaluating heart conditions and abdominal issues, this test may help locate cysts, tumors, and abnormal growths. Your veterinarian may also recommend a pet ultrasound in combination with another diagnostic study such as an x-ray. What’s more, if your pet is scheduled for a surgical procedure, your vet may recommend an ultrasound prior to or following their surgery.

Ultrasound studies are often recommended when your veterinarian:

  • Evaluates your pet’s organs

  • Evaluates your pet’s heart (echocardiogram)

  • Finds abnormalities in blood work or on x-rays

  • Suspects obstructions in the GI tract

  • Monitors a pregnancy

  • Tracks the process/progress of a disease, illness, or injury
