An ultrasound is a painless, non-invasive, and safe diagnostic tool that allows our veterinarians to visualize the internal organs of your pet. Ultrasound gives our veterinarians a better view of your dog or cat’s liver, spleen, kidneys, lymph nodes, and other internal organs. At Foothills Veterinary Hospital, LLC, our skilled veterinarians can use ultrasound to diagnose a number of conditions and illnesses quickly so that the appropriate care or treatment can be initiated immediately.
An ultrasound works by using high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time, three-dimensional image of your pet’s internal organs. These high-definition images allow our doctors to see how the organs inside of your pet are functioning at the time the ultrasound is performed.
With the help of ultrasound, our doctors can quickly locate tumors, cysts, stones, inflammation and enlarged organs within your pet’s abdomen and chest. Ultrasound can also be used to confirm pregnancy by allowing visualization of the heartbeats of puppies and kittens in utero.
