Ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive diagnostic procedure that allows us to visualize a pet's internal organs. Ultrasounds also do not require your pet be sedated during the procedure.
At Southside Animal Hospital in Nashville, we use the ultrasound to help us quickly identify and locate tumors, stones, cysts, inflammation and many other health problems. Veterinarians can also use ultrasound to visualize fetal heartbeats during pregnancy, which helps us to make sure your pet's offspring are developing healthily.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet's internal organs. Results are received in real time from sound waves that travel into the body, returning a 3D image of the internal organs. These high-definition images let veterinarians to see how the organs are functioning in real time.
