Ultrasound for Pets in Bristol
State-of-the-Art Diagnostic Imaging Services
Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital uses ultrasound technology to detect problems in your pet’s abdomen. Ultrasound is a painless, safe, and non-invasive method of evaluating the liver, spleen, kidneys, bladder, stomach, and intestinal tract.
Ultrasonography is a simple tool that can help us make an accurate diagnosis for your pet. The reflections of soundwaves create images of the inside of your pet’s body. Our pet ultrasound technicians in Bristol can then assess the images and look for any irregularities.
We may recommend an ultrasound if your pet is exhibiting symptoms such as:
- Kidney problems
- Heart disease
- Weight loss
- Change in appetite
Ultrasound scans at Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital are conducted by our caring, skilled veterinary professionals. We make every effort to ensure that your pet is comfortable and relaxed for the duration of the scan. The process is quick and painless. Your pet will not need to be anesthetized or sedated unless they are particularly fearful or unable to remain still. We may need to shave a certain area of your pet’s fur to ensure accurate results.
