All Anmial Clinic is proud to have Dr. Liz Watson, Dipl. ACVR, as our consulting radiologist. Dr. Watson routinely performs ultrasound for our patients on an as needed basis.
Ultrasound is a good non-invasive diagnostic tool that can help us identify what is going on inside your pet without the need for surgery. Often times with ultrasound a radiologist can get a fine needle aspirate or even a biopsy sample from an organ with only sedation needed. Ultrasound allows the abdominal organs to be evaluated and measured in a three dimensional manner, sometimes negating the need for surgery, and often providing a definitive diagnosis.
Using ultrasound can often times help pet owners make an informed decision regarding further treatment or surgery for their pets.
