For Your Furry Best Friends In Kansas City
Here at Eagle Animal Hospital & Pet Resort, our Riverside animal hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology, including veterinary ultrasound. Pet ultrasound has been used on patients for decades to provide your veterinarian with an in-depth view of your pet’s organs and internal structures. While x-rays can reveal a great deal about your pet’s organs, including the size, dimensions, and position, combining ultrasound with other imaging capabilities creates a clearer, fuller picture of your pet’s potential issue. Keep reading to learn more about our ultrasound services, and connect with your veterinarian in Kansas City to arrange your pet’s consultation.
We believe that your pet’s health, wellness, and well-being are of the utmost importance. As your dedicated team of veterinarians, we want to help them live long, healthy, happy lives while enjoying the best quality of life possible. But just like us humans, our precious pets are at risk of health conditions, illnesses, and injuries that can cause pain and discomfort, reducing their overall quality of life.
Fortunately, your friends at Eagle Animal Hospital in Riverside rely on cutting-edge technology and advanced imaging tools to care for your beloved pets. These techniques allow for quick and accurate diagnoses, rapid detection of health issues, and advanced monitoring systems that can help us treat various issues and prevent the onset of health conditions common to our canine and feline family members.
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.
One of the biggest advantages of ultrasound images is that it provides your pet’s doctor with real-time data to inform accurate diagnoses, personalized treatments, and preventative health care for your pet. Not only that, but we can share these images with our Tiffany Springs pet clinic when necessary.
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.
