Your Pals Pet Hospital is now offering Ultrasound with a Board Certified Radiologist.

“What is an ultrasound? Will it harm my pet?”

An ultrasound exam uses sound waves to produce images that show inside your pet’s body. It’s painless and noninvasive.

“Why is my veterinarian performing an ultrasound on my pet?”

There are many reasons to perform an ultrasound exam. Although it can be used for routine screening, an ultrasound is most commonly recommended after blood work or radiographs indicate a possible problem. Your veterinarian will use the ultrasound to evaluate your pet’s organs, chest cavity or other bodily structures to obtain an accurate diagnosis. If your veterinarian finds any suspicious fluids or masses, he or she may use a needle to obtain a sample to evaluate.

“Should I change my pet’s daily routine on the day of the ultrasound?”

Your veterinarian may instruct you to not feed your pet during the 8 to 12 hours leading up to the exam. Doing so can produce a more accurate image of your pet’s gastrointestinal tract and can ensure the safety of your pet if it needs to be sedated. Because a urine sample is often obtained during the ultrasound, it’s best to have your pet arrive with a full bladder. If that isn’t possible, your pet may need to wait around for a bit or return few hours later when the bladder has had time to refill.

“What will happen to my pet during the ultrasound?”

Your pet will be laid on a padded table on either its back or its side. If it can’t be safely and comfortably held for the procedure, the veterinarian may recommend sedating your pet. It’s common for the ultrasound location to be shaved, especially if your pet has medium or long hair, because sound waves don’t move as well through fur. Your veterinarian or veterinary technician will then apply a warm gel or rubbing alcohol to your pet’s skin and move the ultrasound probe along the area being examined. The average exam takes around 15 to 30 minutes.

“What happens after my pet’s ultrasound exam?”

The veterinary team will return your pet to you after the exam. Once the veterinarian is able to review the images, he or she will discuss the results and any necessary follow-up care with you. Upon request, the images and results can be put on a disc for your personal records.
