What is Ultrasound?
A non-invasive, pain-free procedure, ultrasound uses sound waves sent into a pet's body to help veterinarians distinguish differences within various organs and other areas. Based on the various strengths at which the sound waves bounce back, a video image can be constructed via computer, enabling your veterinarian to discover any abnormalities that may be present. As a test with no known long-term health risks to pets, it's one of the safest and most effective diagnostic procedures available to veterinarians today.

What Problems Can Ultrasound Detect?
Due to its accuracy and reliability, ultrasound can detect many issues, often before they become serious or life-threatening. One of the most common conditions detected by ultrasound is pancreatitis, which while serious can often be caught early enough to allow for treatment. In addition, Dr. Singh and his experienced staff at Bear Creek Veterinary can also detect early onset spleen cancer, allowing its removal before metastasis occurs. Other conditions diagnosed by ultrasound include kidney damage due to ingestion of antifreeze, liver disease, reproductive abnormalities such as infected uterus, enlarged adrenal or lymph nodes, and internal bleeding due to trauma.
