Ultrasounds for Pets in Leesport
Safe & Pain-Free Diagnostic Methods
To better assess your pet’s health, our veterinarians at Leesport Animal Hospital will sometimes use ultrasound technology. Unlike x-rays, which require radiation, ultrasound is a safe, radiation-free method of diagnostic imaging. During an ultrasound, specific parts of your pet’s body are exposed to high-frequency sound waves which produce real-time images of the structures and movement of your pet’s internal organs. It even allows us to view blood flow. Many times, we can conduct an ultrasound using only minimal restraint or sedation.
To schedule an appointment for your furry friend to get an ultrasound, call (610) 549-1155 or contact us online. We gladly welcome pets from Dauberville and Mohrsville.
Why We Use Ultrasounds
One of the most common uses of ultrasound technology is monitoring pregnancy. If you have a pregnant pet, we will be able to assess the health of the fetus and note if there are concerns for the pregnancy.
Other common uses for ultrasounds include:
- Identifying tumors or masses within your pet’s internal organs
- Assessing your pet’s heart
- Uncovering the source of blood in the urine by evaluating your pet’s urinary tract
- Reviewing your pet’s liver and kidney function
- Detecting the cause of vomiting and/or diarrhea by examining your pet’s intestinal tract
- Detecting any abnormalities within your pet’s blood vessels
If your pet appears to be in pain or extremely ill, we might require an ultrasound to help us get an accurate diagnosis. Contact us today by calling (610) 549-1155.
