Ultrasound

We are excited to announce our in-house ultrasound. This is one way we are continuing to provide the absolute best care for your pet.

Diagnostic ultrasound has been proven to be a powerful tool for veterinarians. Ultrasounds are a non-invasive and non-radiographic, and instead, use high-frequency sound waves which provide a safe and harmless experience for your pet. It has been a vital tool that has helped us diagnose patients without having to go into surgery.

The ultrasound allows for the evaluation of internal organs and is an incredibly useful tool in evaluating heart conditions and detecting alterations in abdominal organs.

With the ability for real-time monitoring, ultrasounds are also utilized for pregnancy diagnosis and development monitoring. Since ultrasounds have the ability to obtain real-time information, outcomes can often be determined immediately. We will discuss the results with you that same day and if needed make recommendations for treatments and additional diagnostics. For more complicated cases we also have the ability to have a specialist “sit in” during an ultrasound to consult with Dr Bright.
