New Haven Pet Hospital offers numerous specialized imaging options to assist in the diagnosis of your pet’s health condition. Advanced veterinary imaging, including pet ultrasound, is extremely valuable in the diagnosis and treatment of pet emergencies and illness.
Ultrasound is an advanced digital imaging technique that allows the veterinarian to examine the internal organs of your pet. Veterinary ultrasound is painless to administer and has no known side-effects. Ultrasound can capture real-time movements of the organs so functional abnormalities can also be found. It can be performed without the use of anesthesia for a stress-free experience for your pet.
During an ultrasound, sound waves are converted into a moving image of your pet’s internal organs. It is available for immediate evaluation and easily shared digitally. Many people are familiar with ultrasounds as a part of a pregnancy exam to show the baby inside the mother. Ultrasound has many other uses such as:
- Abdominal function—blockages or pregnancy
- Heart function
- Liver, bladder, spleen, and kidneys
