Pet Ultrasounds at Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic

Your pet might look and seem happy and healthy, but knowing what's going on inside them is crucial to your pet's health. Unless you have access to certain diagnostic tools, there’s really no way to tell. An ultrasound is one such means of internal testing that our veterinarians use to get a full picture of your pet’s health. Here’s what you need to know about pet ultrasounds.

What Are Pet Ultrasounds?

Pet ultrasounds are a means of testing a pet internally. Our vet will get a reading with an ultrasound device that shows ultrasonic wave reflections and echoes. This allows our vet to see an internal picture of the body part in question, such as a pet’s stomach or even their head.

Of course, like it’s often a preferred means of confirming pregnancy and fetus development in human beings, ultrasounds are also a trusted means of testing pregnancy in dogs, cats, and other pets.

Why Get a Pet Ultrasound?

There are plenty of reasons to order a pet ultrasound. Here are some: 

  • Ultrasounds are a safe means of diagnosing an injury or medical condition.
  • Ultrasounds are painless.
  • There’s no reason to anesthetize a pet for this testing.
  • Results are often instantaneous. For instance, if a pet is pregnant, our veterinarian will be able to see the developing fetus. If the pet has a broken bone, this is also clearly visually apparent.

What Do These Diagnose?

As mentioned, there are plenty of injuries and illnesses that pet ultrasounds can diagnose that other means of testing cannot, such as physical exams. These include:

  • Broken bones or bone fractures
  • The growth of bone spurs
  • Spinal misalignments
  • Internal bleeding
  • Pregnancy
  • Severe muscle damage
  • Tumors and other unnatural growths

In some instances, our veterinarian may recommend combining an ultrasound with an x-ray for an even clearer picture of your pet’s health. From there, we can prescribe a treatment that will be tailored to your pet’s unique condition.
