Ultrasound Technology

A physical exam can tell us a lot about what is going on with your dog or cat, but sometimes we need to look a bit deeper. When we need to see inside your pet’s body, digital ultrasound is often the best option. While x-rays are used to look at bones, ligaments, etc., ultrasound can be used to examine soft and fluid-filled organs.

At ABC Veterinary Clinic of Lewisville, we are thrilled to offer this high-tech service for our patients. Ultrasound technology makes diagnostics faster, easier, and more comfortable for your pet and enables us to begin the correct course of treatment.

Digital ultrasound technology can be used to take a look at your pet’s spleen, lymph nodes, pancreas, liver, kidneys, intestinal tract, heart, ovaries, uterus, testicles, and eyes. During the procedure, sound waves are used to capture images of the organs being examined. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound exams do not expose pets to radiation. In addition, ultrasound provides a complete internal view of your pet’s organs while an x-ray only shows the shape and size of the organs.

In many cases, ultrasound can be used to diagnose potential problems earlier. This type of equipment can be used to detect things like masses, abscesses, cysts, and nodules that may not be detectable during an exam or on an x-ray.
