Otay Vet Veterinary Clinic - Ultrasound

The use of ultrasound as a diagnostic imaging method is now well established as a diagnostic method in veterinary practice. Many people are familiar with the use of ultrasound in human pregnancies. Ultrasound can be used in a similar way to obtain images of internal organs in our pet´s body.

Ultrasound is very useful in determining heart functions and is also used to examine organs in the abdomen such as the liver and kidneys. Ultrasound can also be used to guide needles into internal organs to obtain tissue samples for laboratory analysis.

Otay Vet Veterinary Clinic operates a modern ultrasound scanner and we use it in assisting with diagnosis of pregnancies and illnesses in pets. The operation of an ultrasound scanner is an advanced skill that takes a lot of practice and training to archive a high standard of proficiency in carrying out ultrasound scans.

Ultrasound has become a technique in daily use in Otay Vet that has delivered great benefits to our patients by providing an accurate and non-invasive means of looking at the internal organs of the body.
