If your pet’s behavior seems off, it could be a sign of an underlying issue. If you’re concerned about the health of your pet and live in the Jackson, TN, area, visit Jackson Animal Clinic. After an examination by our veterinarian, we might recommend a pet ultrasound to see what’s going on inside of your pet’s body. Pet ultrasound is an ideal diagnosis tool for animals due to the tool’s painless and non-invasive characteristics. Through pet ultrasound, we can examine your pet’s soft tissue organs to ensure proper function.
Pet Ultrasound: Quick, Non-Invasive, and Painless
With pet ultrasound, our friendly and experienced veterinarian can perform a quick examination of your pet in an unobtrusive and non-threatening matter. Pet ultrasound is ideal for getting a look at your pet’s spleen, heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas. It also allows us to view the intestinal tract, lymph nodes, and other areas that will provide invaluable information when diagnosing your pet.
Our ultrasound equipment directs a narrow beam of high-frequency sound waves into your pet’s body. These sound waves may pass through, be reflected, or be absorbed by the tissues that they contact. Reflected ultrasound waves return to the equipment as echoes, creating an image that is displayed on the monitor. This appears as a two-dimensional image of the tissues in question.
An ultrasound can reveal a myriad of diseases and medical conditions ranging from kidney stones to diseases of the heart and liver. Proper diagnosis allows our staff and veterinarian team to formulate an informed treatment plan tailored to your pet’s individual needs.
