At East Poplarville Veterinary Clinic, it is our goal to provide the best veterinary care possible. Ultrasound has become an important tool that helps doctors to diagnose and treat pets quickly and efficiently.
The ultrasound is a non-invasive, painless tool that uses sound waves to allow veterinarians to look inside your pets’ bodies to help them diagnose existing problems. Ultrasounds are often a better alternative to radiographs because they allow the doctor to clearly see your pets’ vital organs enabling them to find any abnormalities that cannot be seen or felt during an examination. An abdominal ultrasound is most often used to diagnose bladder and kidney stones, abdominal masses, to aid in the assessment of organ function, and to evaluate pregnancies. It can also be used to detect problems with the heart.
