When are Ultrasounds Necessary?

Pet ultrasound becomes essential in various scenarios:

  • Abnormal Blood Work: If your pet’s blood work indicates potential issues with internal organs, ultrasound provides a detailed examination to identify the underlying problem.
  • Unexplained Symptoms: Persistent symptoms such as vomiting, weight loss, or changes in behavior may warrant an ultrasound to investigate internal causes.
  • Monitoring Chronic Conditions: For pets with chronic conditions like heart disease or kidney problems, regular ultrasounds help monitor the progression of these conditions.
  • Pre-Surgical Assessment: Prior to surgeries, especially those involving abdominal or thoracic areas, ultrasound helps assess the condition of organs and structures.
