Veterinary Ultrasound Services Can Provide Answers About Your Pet's Health

Posted by

Certified Veterinary Cardiologist Near Me In Lakewood, CA
When it comes to diagnosing health issues with animal companions, your veterinarian can more effectively care for them if they have a good picture of what's happening inside your pet's body. With ultrasounds and digital x-rays, your vet team at Bloomfield Animal Hospital, serving pet owners in Lakewood, California, can give your pets the care they need more effectively.

Ultrasound Access and Digital X-Rays

Below, we detail what can be done with digital x-rays and ultrasounds.

Digital X-Rays

With digital x-rays, your pet experiences a non-invasive and effective way for the veterinarian to see inside their body. Although digital x-rays have just begun to be used for clinical purposes, they've become a preferred method of obtaining x-rays. What are the benefits of digital x-rays for your pets?
  • Images are of higher quality.
  • Digital x-rays give less exposure to radiation.
  • It's easy to share information among team members with digital x-rays

Ultrasound Access

Why would a pet need an ultrasound? Any of these conditions may require ultrasound services.
  • Heart conditions: Dr. Arambulo and his team may recommend an echocardiogram ultrasound for animals with heart conditions.
  • Abnormal urine or blood test results: Abdominal ultrasounds allow the veterinarian to see a pet's internal organs, including the spleen, kidneys, urinary bladder, lymph nodes, and more, to determine the cause of abnormal test results.
  • Other soft-tissue examinations: An ultrasound may be used to help the vet to evaluate fetal development and viability, the thyroid gland, ligaments, eyes, and tendons.
  • Foreign object detection: Veterinarians often use ultrasound to search the gastrointestinal tract for foreign objects that won't appear on x-rays. That can include cloth, plant material, paper, or even thin plastic.
  • Emergency ultrasounds: When your pet is experiencing an emergency, your veterinarian can gain valuable information from focused ultrasounds of the abdomen or thorax (chest). For example, your vet can quickly determine if your animal companion has pneumothorax or an internal hemorrhage.
