When you bring your pet to a veterinarian, the doctor will typically perform a thorough physical exam. But sometimes, your pet will need the veterinarian to have a closer look on the inside of their body. Ultrasound is superb modern technology that allows for completely painless detailed assessment of internal organs. That’s why our team regularly utilizes ultrasonography to reveal things we wouldn’t be able to detect during a regular exam. An ultrasound can help spot early signs of more severe problems that might require specialized care. If your pet is in need of veterinary ultrasound, see below for what you can expect from our team at Aloha Animal Hospital.

Ultrasounds for Animals 

There are many reasons for using ultrasound for animals. An ultrasound is a painless and non-invasive way to check for disease in the internal organs and examine muscles and other tissues.

At Aloha Animal Hospital, we provide state-of-the-art ultrasound technology for your pet. This technology lets us examine our patients in detail while keeping them as comfortable as possible. Our veterinarians have worked with diagnostic ultrasound for animals for over 20 years. We also consult with boarded radiologists to confirm our findings and help guide your pet’s care. In addition to diagnosis, ultrasound is a valuable tool for monitoring pregnancies in animals and guiding biopsies.

Echocardiograms for Animals 

Another essential use of ultrasound technology is performing echocardiograms. These monitor heart activity so that we can detect any cardiac problems your pet may have. Echocardiograms help diagnose heart problems and give insights into treatment. At Aloha Animal Hospital, we work with a qualified cardiologist to treat heart conditions in dogs and cats.
