Ultrasound for Pets

Diagnostic ultrasound is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the structures within an animal body. The images obtained can provide valuable information for the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions and diseases. Our team takes great effort to avoid stress and discomfort in our patients during each session. We will, in some cases, lightly sedate our patients to relieve anxiety, pain, and stress if needed.

There are times that based on the ultrasound results, we need more information to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Using the ultrasound, we are able to collect numerous diagnostic samples including organ biopsies, lymph node aspirates, urine, and abdominal or thoracic fluid. The samples are then submitted to a histopathologist for evaluation.

Echocardiography for Dogs and Cats

Ultrasound used to evaluate heart function dogs and cats is called echocardiography. This type of ultrasound for pets uses sound waves to produce images of your pet's heart. The images collected are then used to identify underlying heart disease. Some of the specific things that we evaluate during an echocardiogram are heart wall thickness, valvular changes, abnormal back flow of blood into the heart chambers, blood clots/thrombus formation, and congenital disorders/defects.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
