ULTRASOUNDS

ULTRASOUNDS

Our Vets for Pets Hospitals are equipped with Ultrasounds that provide our Veterinary professionals with a non-invasive procedure of examination that produces images of your pet’s body. This allows us to have a better look at your pet’s health.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

An ultrasounds functions through produces in high frequency sound waves which are emitted by an instrument called a transducer. The Ultrasound’s transducer is placed on your pet’s body in which the waves are reflected back as echoes from the structures of the body examined. These echoes are then capture by the transducer and converted into visual patterns by a computer revealing the structures examined by your pet. The produces images are displayed within the Ultrasound monitor upon examination.

Examination

The Method of examination involves the clipping of fur in the region of examination and applying some ultrasound gel to assist in the functioning of the transducer. Therefore, the procedure inflicts little to zero levels of discomfort to your pet. In some cases, your pet may be treated with a sedation or put under general anaesthetic to keep animal still whilst our veterinary professionals perform this examination.
