Ultrasound for Cats and Dogs: Advanced Diagnostic Imaging for Your Pet's Health

At Hometown Veterinary Services, we understand that your pet's health is a top priority. That's why we offer state-of-the-art ultrasound services for both cats and dogs. Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive, painless procedure that allows us to visualize your pet's internal organs, providing invaluable insights into their overall well-being.

Why Choose Ultrasound for Your Pet?
  1. Accurate Diagnosis: Ultrasound is a powerful tool for diagnosing a wide range of conditions, including abdominal issues, heart conditions, and pregnancy. It enables us to see beyond the surface and get a detailed view of your pet's organs and tissues.

  2. Minimally Invasive: Unlike some diagnostic procedures, ultrasound doesn't require anesthesia or surgery. It's a safe and comfortable option for both you and your pet.

  3. Versatility: Ultrasound is highly versatile and can be used to examine various parts of your pet's body, including the abdomen, heart, and even soft tissues.

  4. Guided Procedures: In some cases, ultrasound can be used to guide procedures such as biopsies or fluid collection, ensuring precision and minimizing risks.

Common Uses of Ultrasound for Pets
  • Abdominal Ultrasound: To assess the liver, spleen, kidneys, bladder, and other abdominal organs for conditions like tumors, cysts, or inflammation.

  • Cardiac Ultrasound (Echocardiography): To evaluate heart function, detect heart disease, and assess blood flow through the heart's chambers and valves.

  • Pregnancy Confirmation: To confirm pregnancy and monitor the development of fetuses.

  • Guided Procedures: For procedures such as fine-needle aspirates and tissue biopsies.
