An ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure used to gather real-time imagery of the internal body of a pet. As the imagery is displayed in real-time, the vet can infer the results immediately if they are clear enough.

What can be detected by ultrasound?

An ultrasound can identify a variety of conditions, including:

  • pregnancy and the number of foetuses inside the uterus
  • locating foreign bodies ingested for them to be removed effectively and efficiently
  • cardiac function – the ultrasound waves can be transmitted through, reflected or absorbed by the tissues that they come across
  • whether or not an organ is enlarged, misfunctioning or needs further treatment
  • tumours, cysts and masses, whether they are benign or malignant
  • quality of blood flow through the arteries

The benefits of using ultrasounds:

  • Ultrasounds provide a live view of interior organs with great precision and are most frequently used for pregnant pets and to monitor the health of pups and kittens as they grow
  • It is non-invasive and it requires no medication or anaesthesia, so tends to not distress pets. It is a quick and easy way to gain a clearer insight into what is going on internally, without anesthetising and performing surgery on the pet
  • Ultrasounds are considered to be safe and so can be carried out several times on the same area with no detriment to the pets’ health

Will my pet need to be shaved for the ultrasound?

As ultrasound waves can not pass-through air, the fur in the area to be examined must be shaved so that the probe can make complete contact with the skin. By shaving the pet, we are able to get much higher quality imagery of the area being examined.
