Pet Ultrasounds—A Powerful Tool

Pet ultrasound has proven to be a powerful tool in veterinary medicine.

Pet ultrasonography is a type of veterinary diagnostic technique that uses high frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to produce a moving, real-time image of your pet. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common pet diseases and abnormalities in organ function.

The ultrasound is administered by holding a small probe gently against your pet’s skin. The probe sends out and collects painless ultrasound waves that are interpreted by a sensor and converted into a moving image. Ultrasound waves can generate excellent images of the abdominal cavity.

Veterinary ultrasounds are ideal for viewing images of:

  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Gallbladder
  • Kidneys
  • Tumors
  • Monitoring pregnancy
  • Heart

We also offer in-house ultrasound testing performed by our veterinary team for diagnosis and screening of minor health conditions such as:

  • Pregnancy
  • Tumors
  • Bladder stones

At Animal Medical Center of Wentzville, we strive to provide our patients with the most advanced medicine and diagnostic testing.We provide onsite veterinary ultrasound services performed by an ultrasound imaging specialist in the clinic by appointment.
