Pet Abdominal Ultrasounds
Paws and Claws Pet care offers abdominal ultrasonography performed by a board-certified radiologist. Abdominal ultrasound is a diagnostic technique that is widely used by veterinarians nowadays. It is a quick and non-invasive way of investigating various health conditions in our pets.
An abdominal ultrasound is often helpful in determining the health of our pets’ vital organs, including the liver, spleen, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract. The use of an ultrasound machine allows internal organs to become visible. This makes it easy to detect changes in the shape, size, tissue density, internal structure, and position of organs. It can also identify most abdominal masses or tumors, abdominal fluid, and abnormal lymph nodes.
A significant advantage of abdominal ultrasound for dogs is that it allows the veterinarian to see how the organ functions in real time. It is an economical and painless procedure that requires little or no sedation.
