Ultrasound diagnosis is one of the most commonly performed tests. It is non-invasive, painless, and highly informative, examining the digestive, cardiac, urinary, endocrine, genital systems, as well as monitoring female pregnancy. Sedation is not normally required for testing (unless the animal is aggressive or very stressful).
Ultrasound may also be performed for preventive purposes, especially in older pets. Performing at least once a year can help in the timely detection of developing internal organ pathologies, cancers.
The test is performed while the animal is lying down or standing, and the hair is cut from the test area.
It is recommended not to feed animal for 12 hours before examination.
