Ultrasound

Ultrasound examinations are non-invasive and completely painless

At PetNest Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on providing

the best technology veterinary medicine has to offer.

That is why we are thrilled to offer ultrasound examinations in our office. Available by appointment online, ultrasonography is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging technique that lets our veterinarians view your pet’s internal organs and structures by recording the echos of ultrasonic waves. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound waves do not expose your pet to radiation. Ultrasounds also let our vets peer inside fluid-filled organs and assess masses and tumors.

What to Expect
from the Ultrasound Examination

Ultrasound examinations are non-invasive and completely painless. Typically, your pet’s fur will need to be shaved because the handheld probe used during the exam must be placed firmly against the skin. Anesthesia generally is not required unless biopsies are being taken during the procedure.
Ultrasound studies are performed in real-time, so the veterinarian will be able to see what’s going on with your pet immediately. However, the results need to be sent to a veterinary radiologist for further evaluation in some cases. Our team will let you know their findings and what to expect during your pet’s appointment. And, of course, we are always happy to address any questions or concerns you may have before, during, or after your pet’s ultrasound.
