At Godspeed Animal Care in Williamsburg, Virginia, our veterinarians and staff provide ultrasounds for pet diagnosis using state-of-the-art technology. Ultrasound examinations are non-invasive evaluations of the structure of your dog or cat’s internal organs. This diagnostic tool is accurate and pain free.
When an ultrasound procedure is performed on your dog or cat, our professionally trained staff gently places your pet on our ultrasound table. Your animal then rests comfortably while our veterinarian performs the ultrasound on your pet to develop a proper and accurate diagnosis. In most cases, anesthesia is not necessary.
The staff and veterinarians at Godspeed Animal Care use veterinary ultrasounds to determine if there are possible abnormalities in your pet’s liver, kidney, gallbladder, and other organs, and to detect any stones, cysts, or tumors that may not be visible on radiographs. In addition to checking for these issues, a veterinary ultrasound serves as a tool for obtaining biopsies.
Additionally, our veterinarians can gently gather sterile urine samples via ultrasound-guided cystocentesis. Echocardiography, ultrasound imaging of the heart, can be performed to provide the best overall examination of the heart’s structure and function to determine how efficient your pet’s heart is functioning and to locate any possible health issues. Through telemedicine, the ultrasound images can be transmitted to specialists for further consultation if need be.
