Pet Ultrasound

A non-invasive way to diagnose sick & injured pets.

We offer veterinary ultrasounds for pets. Much like ultrasound for people, pet ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique used to diagnose sick and injured animals.

How does ultrasound work?

When the sound waves penetrate the body, they “bounce” back. The ultrasound machine measures the time it takes for a sound wave to bounce back and creates an image.

What conditions can be diagnosed by ultrasound?

Some injuries and conditions that can be identified via ultrasound include:

  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Gastrointestinal obstructions and foreign bodies
  • Pregnancy
  • Cysts and tumors
  • Heart conditions
  • Liver disease

Ultrasound also allows us to safely collect biopsy and fluid samples without having to perform invasive surgeries.

If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury, call us at (310) 540-5588 to schedule an appointment. An ultrasound performed by a veterinarian with specialized training may be able to assist in diagnosing the problem.
