Beaver Creek Animal Hospital is happy to offer ultrasound examinations to our patients. This technology helps us to evaluate internal organs. Often times, an ultrasound is recommended – sometimes in conjunction with x-rays – for the diagnosis of your pet’s medical problem. Ultrasound allows us to visualize the specific structures of internal organs, often in much more detail than x-ray. Ultrasound examination is a non-invasive procedure and is usually well tolerated. Generally sedation is not necessary to obtain the required images. If necessary, we can even send the images out to a board certified radiologist for further review.
